Great photos…and you could actually swim there without grim warnings….after it being allowed to pollute…and you could catch fish there…before the beach was netted end to end by professionals and the fish just vanished…you can hardly even find seaweed there now….it used to abound .

Does anyone remember “old Newt” who fished at the Pier very often and his mate who’s name I don’t recall but who looked like a John Dorey to me. You could actually catch nice Dorey, Nannygai, Bonito, Garfish, Flathead shark, Trevally Sting Ray, and so on before Balmoral was allowed to go to the dogs.
