After 3 trips to different beaches (Noarlunga, Brighton and Glenelg) all our 4 year old son wanted to do was build his first australian sandcastle - but it being the middle of winter, they weren' to be found anywhere!
Finally found a great selection at a toy shop yesterday in Glenelg - "Imagine This "(I think), right at the beach end of jetty road, next to the moseley square tram stop. well worth a visit and I can personally vouch for the scoop spade!
Next thing is to hunt in the tackle shops for a crab line - saw some massive crabs in a bucket on Brighton jetty. Nate is a crabbing expert in Conwy, North Wales - 43 crabs in under an hour using crab lines and bait of smoked bacon in a laundry tablet net bag. Wonder if Aussie crabs have the same taste for bacon?:v_SPIN:
