  Typical Australian scene
by iandsmith

This is located about 15 minutes south of Port Macquarie at a village called Bonny Hills. This headland in spring attracts many birds, notably the red-tailed cockatoo, a spectacular and clumsy black parrot that comes in to feed on the banksias when they're in bloom.
Little Beach was once the scene of a fatal shark attack many years ago.
Sometimes you can get good surf here, though nearby Rainbow Beach is usually a better option, and fishing is also a common pastime.
As it's a nature reserve you can feel with some certainty that if you choose to go here it will be in the same condition as when this picture was taken.

Directions: South of Port Macquarie
