Where I stayed

Ah man, this is what Oz is all about - sun, sand, surf...... Spent just under a week sunning myself at beaches about 40km out of Sydney, lovely!!
We headed up to a little place called Collaroy, and stayed in the Beach House Hostel - really nice place, even had it's own swimming pool. But who needs a pool when it's a 5 minute stroll to the beach?!
There are about 7 beaches within a 15 minute drive from where we were staying; one of the beaches being Palm Beach where they shoot Home and Away! Didn't see Alf Stewart unfortunately though.
All the beaches are lovely, and all seemed to have loads of surfers hanging around so got to watch a bit of that, which was great. I didn't really go into the sea too much - the warnings about strong currents scared me a little, even though all the beaches had sections that were watched by lifeguards... One of the days most of the beaches were closed because the surf was too big - it was really awesome to just sit watching and listening to the sea, fantastic.
