BLOWN AWAY

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Destination Australia - SU­SAN KUROSAWA

THERE are just 18 cov­eted NSWNa­tional Parks & Wildlife Ser­vice camp­sites at Putty Beach on the Cen­tral Coast; the sea­side ground in­cludes pic­nic ta­bles, gas/elec­tric bar­be­cues and flush toi­lets but the show­ers are cold-wa­ter and open-air, so only the truly brave would ven­ture in win­ter. It’s not too early to con­sider a Christ­mas break here amid the gum trees and rain­bow lori­keets. The surf breaks off­shore and swim­ming is la­goon-like on a calm day, with the big surf ac­tion just a walk south along the sand to Kill­care Beach with its surf club, cafe and life­guards.
