    Our Family from 1947 to 1954 would spend our 6 week Xmas break camping at The Basin. It was a wonderful place to be as a child. Our family formed many long term friendships their, with families who came year after year. At Xmas, the community, would roast a pig and fish etc near the jetty with lots of Tooths Old and shandy for the wives. I remember our tent being flooded on several occasions when we had prolonged rain. I also remember my father and others would go out fishing and sometimes they would catch Hairtail (like a vicious big eel) which were quite tasty. We also used to use a putt putt boat to go round Broken Head to collect bags of magnificent rock oysters. Some of those journeys were almost disasters with the seas springing up unexpectedly.You can imagine the camping equipment at that time was very rudimentary and heavy so the ferry was often rather overloaded as this was the only way to get there. In the basin part itself, was a large netted swimming area with a platform and springboard to show off to the girls.All in all a rare treat to grow up in. And it seems that has continued for many others.

    OK, been there? I go often, to work as a volunteer at Kalkari, Kuringai Chase road. If you want picnic? go. If you like calm and serenity, take a walk on any of lotsa tracks. If you want views go to West Head. Just be fire aware in spring/summer and check the fire rating signs.
