Kingscliff and Kirra sunsets

We headed south from Kirra today, as far as the brand new resort towns of Casuarina and Salt Village and then a few hours at Kingscliff, including an extended lunch at the very polished (for a pub) Kingscliff Hotel. 

Despite its glossed up veneer Kingscliff retains it down home Aussie family beach demeanour with its gleaming aluminium 'van park dominating most of the best parts of the beach front and a lack of the high rise developments that dominate the rest of the Gold Coast.

There was a pod of whales swimming and spraying in the water just off the (tiny) wave break today.....a pretty common sight at Kingscliff between June and November. 

One of our favourite things to do back at Kirra each day is our late afternoon walk along the beach front. We walked towards Coolangatta today - absolutely awestruck by the light show provided by Mother Nature as the sun set over the western end of this north facing beach.
