The 'fatal shore'.  Stockton Beach is quite long and virtually uninhabited and the beach almost disappears into the distance. This is looking south ultimately to the entrance of the Port of Newcastle. Along its length, the high sandhills or dunes are similar to a desert landscape and the dunes menace the hinterlands.
Exploration of the dunes is popular.  Once our family overnighted there in the warm sands and naturally the night grew cool and the breezes became sea ladened along with a few fears of sleeping in the path of a 4x4 but all that was the challenge.
