At Greenglade picnic area, the first thing you’ll notice is the sound of some rainbow lorikeets screeching overhead. But that’s about all you’ll hear, because this is one of the most tranquil places on the NSW coast.
It borders a white stretch of pristine sand that seems to stretch for miles. Often it’s completely deserted, except for red-capped dotterels or pied oystercatchers g along the shoreline. Look out to sea and you might spot a gannet diving for fish or a pod of dolphins cavorting in the water. This is a blessedly unaltered natural landscape, where the whole family can enjoy a picnic lunch, a casual stroll across the sun-lit sands, or try their hand at fishing.
