What great place to set up, with over an hour trip to the coast, now surf when you want to. Go see a footy match and surf all in the one day without the drive. A big plus for one of my favourite Ozzie destinations!
IT’S NOT COOL
In the water yesterday surfing great waves at Noosa and an altercation sparks up behind me. A surfer had been run over by a wayward longboard and he wasnt happy. The owner of the wayward longboard surfing without a legrope had lost his board creaming a few on the inside. The angry surfer pointed out that the legrope is a safety device and he should be wearing one. Cool guy answers “its, my choice”, angry guy “yeah, and its my choice not to get hit by your surfboard”!
For Me, cool guy wasn’t that cool……
IT’S NOT COOL TO NOT WEAR A LEGROPE !

Uluru Central Australia Rain Event Amazing !!
Uluru located in the Kata Tjuta National Park Central Australia as you’ve never seen it before! Barely recognisable in a series of photographs taken during torrential rain. For local photographer Peter Carroll, it was a 20 year wait to capture rain on the rock. I have added some background information below on this sacred and timeless place in Australia.
Anangu people own all of Uluru and Kata Tjuta and lease it back to Parks Australia to be jointly managed as a national park. This arrangement first came into place in October 1985, in an historic moment known today as handback.
In 1950 Ayers Rock, today known as Uluru, was declared a national park. In 1958 both Ayers Rock and Mt Olga (Kata Tjuta) were excised from an Aboriginal reserve to form the Ayers Rock Mt Olga National Park. It took more than 35 years campaigning for Anangu to be recognised as the park’s traditional owners and given the deeds back to their land.
Anangu own all of Uluru and Kata Tjuta and lease it back to Parks Australia to be jointly managed as a national park. This arrangement first came into place in October 1985, in an historic moment known today as handback. Anangu have lived and managed this country for thousands upon thousands of years. Archaeological evidence shows Aboriginal people have lived in Central Australia for at least 30,000 years.
Uluru is a living cultural landscape. Anangu are guided by Tjukurpa (law) to keep both culture and country strong. This is something that has never changed. If you visit Uluru you may see people dot painting, performing inma (traditional dance and song), telling stories or gathering bush tucker.
