It’s usually a struggle to think about buying Christmas presents right? Well this year I have a couple of ideas for quality gifts (or something for yourself) that will help out small businesses and be well received by the men, women and children in your lives. There are also some perfect gifts for the caravan traveller with t-shirts being a summer wardrobe staple piece and some gorgeous earrings that don’t take up much space but add a bit of difference to your holiday outfits. The beauty is that these products can be bought online and delivered right to your door too, so there’s no need to visit crowded shops, but make sure to buy early to guarantee delivery in time for Christmas.

The season is open for collecting cockles at Goolwa Beach and whether you cook with them or use them for bait, it’s a heap of fun collecting your own. Cockle season starts from the 1st of November and goes through until the 31st of May each year. You can dig them out of the sand anywhere along the beach, parking in the beach carpark or at any number of places along this stretch of coast, then head down to the waterline with a bucket and a measure and you’re on your way.
