I heard this on the radio yesterday - North Steyne beach (just down from Manly beach, but part of the same stretch of sand) - which is the closest beach to our flat (just a few minute's walk) was voted the cleanest beach IN AUSTRALIA!!!!
'North Steyne Beach is the only beach in an Australian capital city to win Australia's Clean Beach Award.
Previous winners of the six-year-old awards have been country beaches or at smaller towns. '
FANTASTIC :) Nice to know we live a short walk from such a lovely beach:)
