They are great already but perhaps more linking of paths between beaches as is evident between windmill hill and flynn's beach

We drove off with our mobile phone on top of the car. the phone was found by a cab driver and handed into police who tracked us down and posted the phone to us to the next town we were staying in at no cost to us. We were able to say thank you to the friendly and helpful police on our way back. Unfortunately the honest cab driver did not leave his details so we were unable to thank him.

The Koala hospital is located reasonably close to the hostel. Free tours and well worth a visit.
