Some of the fish
caught just off the continental shelf are bream, rock lobster, mullet, whiting,
flathead, gurnard, gummy sharks, and scallops.
Nearby is Lake Bunga once an oil field itself, sporting its own oil rig from
1924 through to 1945 when it became unprofitable to continue. Today the town
sports a population in excess of 6000 people but can swell to over 30,000 during
the peak summer months when Melburnians escape to this popular resort town for
some serious water sports.
Nearby of course is the famous 90 mile beach. The longest continuous beach in
Australia, perfect for beach lovers.
