As long time naturists and full time teachers in Adelaide, our dream of establishing a
nudist facility in South Australia took an unexpected turn in 1974 when an advert for
100 hectares of land with 1.3km of beach frontage caught our eye.
Not only was the property much larger than we had been seeking, it was also 350
kilometres further south, near the old seaport of Robe. However we were so
captivated by the breathtaking beauty and the peaceful atmosphere of the area that
we were soon persuaded that this was the place in to concentrate our future.
After a successful scramble for finance we bought the property and named it
"Sunland" and Australia's first (and still the only) ocean beach nudist resort, was
Thirty years of part time work went into building the necessary camping ground
infrastructure for holiday guests and revegetating the drifting dunes that lie behind
When we retired from teaching in 1994 we moved from Adelaide and built our home
at Sunland. This enabled us to continue the development full time and share our
patch of paradise with other naturists from around the world.
At the end of 2011 our youngest daughter Wendy moved to Sunland permanently so
that we could retire and enjoy the fruits of our labour. Wendy is now running Sunland
with her partner Jimmy and also enjoying the naturist lifestyle.
