Sydney Beaches
October 2014
Shark attacks and sewage slicks, lifesavers and surfers, amusement parks and beach camps — the beach is Sydney's most iconic landscape feature. From Palm Beach in the north to Cronulla in the south, Sydney's coastline teems with life. People from around the city escape to the beaches to swim, surf, play, and lie in the sun.
