Sandy Bay in Hobart, Australia

Sand Bay is a suburb of 12,000 residents plus an inlet of the Derwent River. It is also a marina for a yacht club and a sailing club at either end of its sandy beach. The waterfront park – both kid and dog friendly – is the Errol Flynn Reserve. Its namesake is the swashbuckling, womanizing and sometimes scandalous Hollywood actor who starred in movies from 1932 until his death in 1959. He was born nearby in 1909 and lived in Battery Park until 1925 when he left for boarding school. In the background is Mount Nelson. Located on top since 1811 is the Signal Station. It offers panoramic views of the bay and surrounding, high-end suburb.
