The view that bush culture has been the dominant culture in colonial Australia overlooks the culture of the beach and the coast.The latter is neither land or sea, nature or culture, but partakes of both. This part of the coast is not the beach--it is between Depp's Beach and Kings Beach which are surf beaches with sandy foreshores.
This is a coastal environment where are there few people along the rocks. Most people stroll along the path of the Heritage trail along the cliff top and only a few venture down to the rocks below.
So there is a sense in which the freedom of the beach (it is public property) extends to the rock foreshore. The immediate hinterland behind the path is farming land--private property. What happens when the farm is eventually sold?
