  Sandy Beach.
by unravelau

But Sandy Beach, the place where I learned to swim, was not only supposedly the largest open air pool in the southern hemisphere, but also a fenced off portion of the shark infested Georges River, famous for its oysters.

A pretty park that attracted heaps of visitors on the weekends also had a unique kiosk come look-out centrally situated. A very peaceful place.

othercontact: Situated at Oatley, south of syd
