MALLACOOTA
Ted Harrington

To the shores of Mallacoota,
Feeling heartsick and depressed,
From the tumult of the city,
I arrived a stranger guest,
Kindly hearts were there to greet me,
Friendly voices welcomed me;
In the house above the inlet,

1 MALLACOOTA BEACH

Mallacoota Bar

Henry Lawson, 1910

    Curve of beaches like a horse-shoe, with a glimpse of grazing stock,

    To the left the Gabo Lighthouse, to the right the Bastion Rock;

    Upper Lake where no one dwelleth — scenery like Italy,

    Lower Lake of seven islets and six houses near the sea;

    ‘Twixt the lake and sea a sandbank, where the shifting channels are,

                    And a break where white-capped rollers bow to Mallacoota Bar.
