I want to retire to this hamlet, but I'm not 100% sure where it is. All I know is that it's on Ninety Mile Beach, which is in the east of the state. Ninety Mile Beach is a classic line of barrier sand dunes which has grown up between the sea and a series of shallow brackish lakes and estuaries. It runs from Lakes Entrance in the east to McLoughlins Beach in the west. McLoughlins Beach is about 3 hours from Melbourne, Lakes Entrance about 4.
We went to Ninety Mile Beach, once, on our first visit to Oz, when we visited the little beach town of Seaspray. The beach was stunning, stretching away to the horizon in either direction, pristine, empty, wonderful; just sea and sky and golden sand. (Click on the picture to see it full sized)
