Day 212 – Fishing at Palm Beach

With the sun beating down, we decided to head over to Palm Beach, which is part of the set used in the oh so famous Australian soap Home and Away. With no plans to visit the Neighbours set, this was probably as close as we would get to going on a tour of either soaps.

From Ettalong, we caught a ferry from outside Andrew’s house directly to Palm Beach. It was about a 25 minute journey which was perfect and so easy to get to. We also took our fishing rods with us after no luck last night as well as nice little picnic.

The four of us headed out mid-morning and before long, we were at Palm Beach. Palm Beach is a very affluent area which was reflected in the numerous posh private boats anchored near the bay.

We found a nice little fishing spot for the boys whilst I sunbathed. The boys only managed to get a few nibbles and nothing suitable for dinner. We spent around 4 or 5 hours at the beach and before long, we had a couple of very sunburnt boys.

We decided to head back mid-afternoon and caught the ferry back to Ettalong. It was so easy and quick to get to from Andrew’s! A perfect location!

In the evening, we bought a few take-away pizzas from over the road and just relaxed. It’s been another great day!
