Ah Eric,

Not the answer but did you know that you did not need to pull that image from ExplorOz to photobucket you could have linked directly to the image stored. To find out the link you need simply right mouse on any image and go properties it will show you the full URL in this case http://www.exploroz.com/Images/Shop/Books/ExploreAustralia/Retire.jpg
Then you can paste this into the image link directly.

To answer your question I just opened the book and it does not say. I think I have stayed there but cannot name it.

Gentlemen & Ladies, The photo is taken from Stanwell Tops Looking down the coast with Stanwell Park and I think Wombarra in the distance, and on a clear day you can see Wollongong. And yes it is the gateway to paradise.

And the prize is ??????

Nah! Stanwell Tops is very pretty but Coffs is paradise. Every time I come home after work and get on the flight from Sydney to Coffs I sit on the left side of the aircraft just to see the magnificent scenery unfold as we follow the coast to Coffs and then my wife meeting me at the airport. Then I am truly home for a while until it is time to go back to work again in some other third world country. Just anywhere in Oz is paradise by comparison.

Have to disagree with you about Coffs. It's actually on the way to Paradise. However I'd totally agree with Oz. There's no way I'd live in any of the countries I've visited...

Footloose, I will beg to differ about Coffs, but you are right about the other countries. I have been in Central Asia for nearly 2 months and I am ready to go home for a touch of normality. The boss has also said I may get a rotation in Oz for a change which I am looking forward to very much.
It is so unfortunate some people in this fabulous country do not realise they are living in paradise. If only the could see and experience what I have in the world.

Graeme, the fact that we can voice differing opinions without fear of consequences is one of the hidden joys of this country. I can refer to the PM as little Johhny without the secret police knocking on my door in the middle of the night. I can cross borders without carrying papers. I don't need offocial permission to leave the country. (although I do if I want to return) I have a higher chance of being hit by lightning than being arrested for political crimes. My living standards are high, although many many here have higher. Although I whinge about the Govt, in the final analysis they do provide a host of services and support unheard of in many countries.
And the best thing is that heavens only a local call from here.
Yep, paradise :))

Ah we have the "where" and "How" to retire can someone help me with the "when"? I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel just not sure if it's a train coming my way.

BTW way too many people at Stanwell Park. A very long time ago some friends of my parents bought an old house on the very top (Stanwell Tops) where the road intersects and they were talking about making this into a tea house - just wonder if anyone can tell me is this still there?

Kind regards

Yea it is now a house but many moons ago it was a house of adult fun.
It was then sold a few times then a fellow who owned strip clubs owned it.
Now it is back to a house with a family.

Thanks Eric. My experience dates back about 35 years - so a lot of water under the bridge. The people know to my parents bought it from some lady who'd lived there for some time and if my memory serves passed away whilst in this house. When I saw it, it was still full of ols gear like pictures, riding gear and furniture. A stately old place with a roond lounge room that overlooked Stanwell Park.

Kind regards

I think you will find that her name was Betty she was a spinster.
Her and her sister ran a brothel out of there for the coal miners.
That was the rumor I can verify that.
