From Palm Beach in the north to Cronulla in the south, Sydney’s coastline teems with life as people from around the city escape to the beaches to swim, surf, play, and lie in the sun. Sydney Beaches tells the story of how locals developed their love of the beach, from 19th-century picnickers to the surfing and sun-baking pioneers a century later. But Sydney’s beaches have another lesser-known, intriguing history as the world-famous beach culture only exists because the first beachgoers demanded important rights. Featuring vibrant and historic images of Sydney’s seashore, this expansive and delightful book is the story of how a city developed a relationship with its ocean coast, and how a nation created a one-of-a-kind culture.
