Summary:
This book explores the ever-changing relationships between bodies, oceans, beaches and tourism. Drawing on feminist scholarship, the book focuses on the emergence of Australian beach cultures beyond metropolitan centres from the early 19th century to the early 20th century on the Illawarra beaches, some 80 kilometres south of Sydney.
