I live on the mid north. coast of NSW about 350 km from Sydney
We are surrounded by water . Lakes, rivers, beaches. The first industries were fishing and timber getting and boat building.Of course the aboriginals lived here and there are still descendents of the original tribes living here.
About 15,00 people live in Forster- Tuncurry which are towns divided by the lake. Tourism is now very important to the area.
