Uploaded: April 23, 2011



Looking north across the sandbar in the channel at The Entrance, NSW... The pelicans and seagulls love to rest on it at low tide...


"Known by a number of names over the years - Toowoon Bay, Tuggerah Beach, Karagi (the Aboriginal name for the channel) - the settlement around the channel became The Entrance when the post office opened under that name in 1911.

"The Entrance name comes from the narrow channel that divides the mainland and connects Tuggerah Lake to the ocean."

Captured about half an hour before sunset, as a storm was brewing in mid-spring, on the 31st of October 2010...
