Souvenir Plate, Sea Acres Sanctuary, 1960s

Reserved by the Crown in 1913 as part of Shelly Beach Flora Reserve, Sea Acres was designated a wildlife refuge in 1967.  Now a National Park, Sea Acres is described as a ‘beach wrapped in rainforest, where the crash of waves is accompanied by a choir of birdsong’. It protects one the largest remaining coastal rainforests on the east coast of Australia.
