We went there for a visit last week and were quite disappointed. I was expecting quite a large town but it's really small. We got really confused looking for the centre but all we found was a town hall, a library, a few shops. We even went in the library to ask where the centre was and they said this is it! The bigger shops have been built in an out of town centre, your usual Big W, Target etc. The port is very busy and we went up to a lookout point on a hill to see if there was anything else to see only to bump into Peter Beattie! He was there to promise an investigation into why the town has 10 times the average rate of leukaemia. People there have an issue with coal dust. I'm sure the people living there are good sorts but the only two we met were a bogan and a young woman drinking beer at a cafe at 9.30 am. Tannum Sands to the south looks a very nice town, right on the beach. But there were warning signs for marine crocodiles.
