Can you help an out of work tour guide?

I was working as a tour guide in Sydney until the planes stopped flying. If you are enjoying my blog posts and can afford to toss a bit of coin into my virtual hat – the cost of a coffee or beer, say – that would be a huge help.  I hope you are faring as well as can be expected wherever you are.

No 3: Basin Beach – 27 February 2010


We actually hit two beaches this day beginning with Basin Beach in Mona Vale, some 40km north of home.



I really liked this beach — it’s on a wineglass shaped bay which makes it not much for surf. As a native Chicagoan that works for me. Lots of families about and a nice little shallow sea pool on the southern end.



Basin Beach is in Mona Vale.  The area was known as Bongin Bongin by the aboriginal Australians who lived here for freaking ever before the British colonial government handed the area over to Robert Campbell as part of the first land grant made in the area in 1813.


Mona Vale is in the Pittwater Council LGA, the state seat of Pittwater (Rob Stokes, Liberal) and the federal seat of Mackellar (Bronwyn Bishop, Liberal).
