Opponents of the Tyagarah clothing-optional beach have frequently cited the Get Naked Australia website for information on naturism.
The creator of this site went to Tyagarah to check out the situation with his wife and two other couples.
Their experience: ‘We saw predominantly couples, contrary to reports that the beach is dominated by creepy males. We saw a young family having the time of their lives… Overall we saw a number of people practising naturism in its truest form and saw no signs of the supposed consistent “lewd behaviour.”’
All stakeholders agree that antisocial activity at the beach has decreased over the last 12 months and my partner and I commend the councillors who voted in October to build on this progress.
In our society we don’t let the illegal actions of a small minority destroy the good things enjoyed by the responsible majority.
