Sunday in Maroubra
Maroubra Sydney Beachside Suburb located 10 klms south of the city was so busy on this beautiful sunny Sunday. Just finding a place to park the car was a major frustrating excercise.
Maroubra Sydney Beachside Suburb
Some of the expensive apartments overlooking the beach. In fact the average price of an apartment in Maroubra is around $850,000, however those in the photo would be more than double that. The average house price in the suburb is $1,840,000.
Here is what makes Maroubra famous
One of Sydney’s best surfing beaches.
Everyone is waiting for a wave to ride.
The blue building is the surf club.
You can clearly see the lookout tower where the lifesavers keep a close eye on the swimmers.
A favourite photo
You have the camera man, the babe doing excercises, the Bra Boy heading for the surf & a couple just watching the action. Bra Boys are a notorious surf gang, at their home beach Maroubra.
In December 2005 riots broke out between Muslum gangs from Sydneys Western suburbs & Eastern suburbs surfers. Follow THIS LINK for details. Contrary to popular opinion I personally was proud of the Aussie surfers that day.
That’s a huge zoom lens
No doubt tis guy is a serious photographer. 🙂
Important safety message
When on the beach in Australia make sure you always use sun blockout, wear a hat & swim between the flags.
In recent years I have had many skin cancers removed, doctors tell me the damge was done many years ago before I turned 16 years of age. In those days we NEVER use sun protection.
A great family enviroment
What a place to grow up & to have fun on a magificent beach like Maroubra.
Similar to every other Sydney beachside suburb sidewalk cafes abound.
What a great year for travel in 2015
That’s all folks
