Shifting Sands of Time – New World Class Waves For St Francis Bay

Shifting Sands of Time – New World Class Waves For St Francis Bay:

A world class series of spitting sand bars at St Francis Bay and the rolling tubes of the old Bruce’s Beauties are on the cards with the news of exciting plans

There are many reasons why there is no more sand in St Francis Bay, and they all fall under the banner of human intervention.

It started with the stabilisation of the dunes that once fed sand to create the fabled tubes of Bruce’s Beauties. Leighton Hulett owned the farm back then, but it was a man named Tom Brown who introduced alien Australian acacia shrubs Port Jackson and Rooikrantz willow to stabilise the dunes. It worked. The sand stopped moving. The sand stopped shifting to the point, and subsequently the beaches.

Brown was believed to be a descendant from a survivor from “Lady Heal” – an East India vessel wrecked at the Kromme River Mouth in 1859 on her way home from Rangoon to Liverpool. A Liverpudlian was most likely the man who quelled the critical flow of sand in St Francis Bay.
