Overall Guide : Love The Gong, use to live there many years ago and re-visited in 2011. A lot had changed, some good, some not so, but people still friendly and helpful, scenery as breathtaking as ever, plenty to see and do. Good... more eating places. Highly recommend for visit or to live. Fantastic beaches
Not to be missed Beaches , botanical gardens , Mount Keira lookout
