January 8, 2013. NC Art sent a link to a bunch of pics of kids getting up to mischief. Click here for the photo album.

January 4, 2013. That's a lie. Well, not quite. Today is January 4 but I shot the footage for Forster Tuncurry last October. It was a windy day so I didn't shoot all that much. Not many people about either. So this morning I dug into my archives and retrieved a few shots I took back in 2007. Then I nicked a couple off the web and put the video together. Forster Tuncurry are twin towns on opposite sides of Wallis Lake, connected by a long bridge, part of the Great Lakes District of the Mid North Coast of New South Wales.

It's a popular holiday destination with just about every recreational activity you can imagine. Back in the 50s and 60s it was a small village (with a punt service taking traffic across the lake), frequented by caravanners and campers. These days, tall apartment blocks have mushroomed and the towns are now reminiscent of a mini Gold Coast. A great attraction is the Wallis Lake Fisherman's Co-op which also runs a restaurant specializing, of course, in fresh seafood and good ol' fish 'n' chips.
