In love with Tannum

TANNUM Sands is the place to be.

And, whether you are on holiday, planning a wedding, heading to the beach or hoping for a quiet picnic and barbecue with the family, there is nowhere else but Canoe Point.

Local girl Tania Hinds took her parents, Keith and Sue Shepherd, down to the water’s edge to take in the sights of the perfect area as well as its sunny weather.

“We just love it here, we are planning a barbecue later in the week,” Ms Shepherd said.

They took in the whole surroundings and basked in the sunny weather, having come to the area to escape the cold.

“We have never been to this part before, but we came to have a look around and we would definitely come back,” Mr Shepherd said.

Having been to the area two years ago Mr and Mrs Shepherd were keen to see what else the region had to offer and they were delighted with what they found.

It is a place they can now call their “home away from home”.

After their daughter fell in love with the area and moved from Tasmania, they just had to see what all the fuss was about.

So, for a relaxing weekend away, a day out with the family, some light fishing or even a stroll along the boardwalk, Canoe Point is Tannum Sands’ own patch of paradise worth seeing.
