A Sunburnt Country
A Sunburnt Country is a beautiful full colour photograph presented by Josephine Caruana of Jo. C. Photography
This photo by Josephine Caruana of Austinmer Beach NSW Australia was taken while watching the sun rise on another beautiful day. As surf crashes on the rocks people are already gathering to enjoy the day having breakfast and just having fun. Austinmer Beach is one of the most popular beaches located 25 minutes north of Wollongong's central business district. Its popularity dates back to the 1900s when people came by train to stay at several guest houses.
Today Austinmer is well set up to cater to large summer crowds being patrolled September to April. It is located off Lawrence Hargrave Drive, with shops lining the western side and a large car park and park between the beach and the Drive. Norfolk Island pines back the length of the beach with the Surf Club and other amenities occupying the southern half of this 250 metre long beach. Two large rock pools lie on the southern rock platform.
The relatively small beach is wedged between two low headlands and their extensive rock platforms. It receives waves averaging 1.4 metre which result in two strong permanent rips against the rocks at each end.
