Made famous by a hit TV show Home and Away, fans of the show often want to visit the beach to see where the filming of this show takes place and hopefully run into their favourite stars of the show. What they often find is that not only is this beach beautiful but nearly every Sydney beach has a unique beauty that attracts millions of people year round.

Situated in the State of NSW: With only 8 States and Territories Australia does not have many in comparison to other parts of the world. When you consider the size of Australia our entire countries population is quite spread out.
