Many kite surf and the flagged area is at the southern end; we were at the the northern end, and there were loads of rips, so no swimming or thought of going in was in mind. Norah Head Lighthouse is at the southern point built in 1903, with many wreck vessels in its vicinity. Budgewoi, was named in 1868 with the aboriginal word meaning "Meetings of two waters" I can assure you this area certainly lives up to its name.

Some were buried, some weren't and an entire stretch was like a bird graveyard. As grose as that sounds, it was quite interesting because apart from the birds, it was a pristine clean beach, at the circuit area we did.
Shells were of great interest. The smoothness of these shells in this area were amazing, pumic stones with pippies growing off them up on the shore, skipping stones of fantastic size and heaps of cuttlesfish washed up in the tide. Skelton remains of birds and fish.
The ecosystem in this area is amazing. The hills are steep and of different sand texture, almost a black thick sticky sand, that digs in. I was amazed at the beauty of this area, an island to the left of us with the rips and waves crashing and backlashing together were too fantastic to remember to take a photo. We spent two hours here and I could have done longer.
