Made a special trip from Sydney and it was definitely worth it. The staff are super friendly and more than willing to share their surf stoke. Their range of gear is extensive and some really amazing deals. If you have the time they have demo boards to try-before-you buy and there are great surf spots close buy. Got excellent advice...

They had swimmer one piece rashy all in one and 1mm one piece swimsuit, with long sleeves and shorts on the legs. I bought both I was so excited at the... More

I like Natural Necessity, but it can get pricey for a cafe. I took in a couple of out-of-town visitors, one of whom is vegan, and it's probably the best place in the area to get vegetarian fare. He opted for a chickpea burger with satay sauce that was a bit sloppy, but didn't leave a bit on his plate.... More

Couldn't believe the size of this store & the variety they have! I'm in the clothing industry & hard to please but was pretty impressed with their range of brands, they also have some quite cool kids clothing & a fantastic swim range for everyone, its definitely targeted at a more younger demographic but if you hunt through there is...

This is much more than a surf-shop, having all sorts of clothing and accessories. On two levels and with a huge variety of items. Parking can be tricky in the main street and there's a large car park out the back and a rear-entrance to the shop. There's also a nice cafe called "Perfect Break" as part of the shop... More

Always thought this very popular shop was for the surfing crowd but in fact it caters for all ages. Staff are so attentive and the choice is amazing. I went in for some rock shoes but could have spent ages perusing the aisles
