Marion Fulker discusses in Business Insider why she thinks Australia's famous beaches are losing their mojo.

I am a water baby and there is nothing I like better as the weather warms up than a trip to the beach. I admit to getting a bit panicky and out of sorts if I find myself in
a landlocked situation for too long. Don’t get me wrong, I love the bush and the occasional visit reminds me of just how beautiful it is. A few days
communing with nature and taking in the eucalypt scent is about my limit.

Forget camping or even glamping; after a day of swimming I like a good hot shower and a nice soft bed. Fortunately for me, therefore, Australia is a big island and Perth, like my hometown of Sydney, is hugged by an expansive coast line that is lapped at by a vast ocean.
