After horticulture, fishing is a major industry with prawns, scallop, crab
and wet line fishing. Tourism is the fastest growing industry, particularly
with the migration north to warmer weather over winter. There are at least
six large caravan parks in the town catering for these tourists, both from
Australia and overseas. Like us, many stay for a week to give a break in
their journey, and this must bring in significant money into the town.
