All the beaches

Sydney has beaches, sure, we all know that, Bondi of course, and Manly, we’ve all heard of them, they’re everyone’s favourites, even if you’re not from Sydney you’ve probably heard of a couple of others as well, maybe Coogee or Bronte ring a bell.
There’s plenty more to choose from though, dozens in fact, so, if you’re up for a bit of armchair travel, surfing the surf so to speak, then this post is for you.
I’ve just wrapped up a little project to shoot an image at each and every one of the surf beaches along the Sydney coastline.
From Cronulla in the south to Palm Beach way up on the northern beaches.
It’s a long trip, around 70 or 80 kilometres if you take the quickest route between just those two beaches, substantially more if you decide to drop in on every beach between.
Some have great long sandy shores, while others are little rocky coves hidden from the main roads.
I’ve got my new favourites now, Whale Beach on the north-side for a beach pool swimming spot, Dee Why, also on the north-side, for a holiday at home location, Little Bay and Tamarama on the south-side for a quiet getaway and a bit of people watching.
Least favourites?, sadly two of the big names, Bondi and Cronulla.
Bondi for it’s awful man-made environment, a charmless shopping strip, sitting unloved and surrounded by hectares of ghastly bitumen, and Cronulla for it’s access points, six lanes of choking traffic in and out, both places best avoided.
I’ve put together a photo selection below, click on one to bring up a gallery, I’ve kept the files quite small so it zips through pretty quickly.
