Get involved with sport, the arts, local businesses… the list goes on, and that’s not to mention our incredible food scene.

Coming from humble beginnings, we haven’t lost our coastal town feel, and we love our surf, sunshine and sport. We are a tightknit community and are always coming up with new ideas to connect with one another.
