Life is a Beach
It used to be a quiet place for a family camping , fishing holiday. Like all waterfront centres in Australia there has been much recent development to cater for the ever increasing aged population looking for a "Sea Change" plus the upwardly mobile younger generation with ever-increasing disposable assets looking for the trendy place to park the BMW for a couple of days to chill out. High rise developments in Kingscliff? Sign of the times.
Further down the coast on a stretch of coastline that had been mined for mineral sands there are new stand alone holiday destinations . Outrigger Beach Resort at Salt being just one.
