Lockdown and two crocheted camels.

Capturing the sleepy town of McLoughlins Beach.

Words: Phoebe Rich @ The View From Here.

Contribute to support more positive local storytelling.


The sleepy town of McLoughlins Beach, the gateway to the fabled Ninety Mile Beach with a population of less than 300 folk, is a place unaffected by time or the undue influence of popular culture.

Where the simple things in life are the best kind. The coffee of a morning is burning hot and a hint of toasted marshmallow complements the air of a night. A place of unencumbered freedom that has escaped the weight and pressures of modern society, and all dogs are welcome, even in the bed.

Big shout–out to Snickers & Meeka.
