Catherine Hill Bay beach was voted one of the best beaches in Australia by someone who should know – surfing writer Brad Farmer was half of a team that surveyed all of the country’s 10,000-plus beaches, and between them they had to whittle it down to a top 100, and from there choosing their personal top ten and favourite. Catherine Hill Bay won his vote.
