This may be part of Austrailia, but it is far away from the warmth of the Indian Ocean. These waters can risk hypothermia, but that doesn’t stop surfers and winter swimmers!

This is a popular destination because it is only a few meters away from an airport. Only a little road and a fence separate the beach for the port and that gives people a huge thrill! There are multiple warning signs to stop people from getting close to the runway but the risk of a plane crash and the extremely loud plane noise don’t stop them from visiting the unique area.
