“My family have been coming to Mossy Point/Broulee since 1958, first staying in this house on Annett’s Parade. I think it is still there albeit renovated. An enduring memory is the rickety footbridge over Candalagan Creek. Our dachshund always did his best to fall through the missing slats.
My parents bought land from Mr Smith in Smith St in about 1960 and built a very modest house in a modern style in about 1970 which served our family very well for 50 years.
We have holidayed every year and often many times a year since then. We finally renovated the house this year and as with most of Broulee fortunately escaped the ravages of the New Year’s Eve bushfires.
We are now into our fourth generation of Broulee loving folk and expect to always be coming down – with the expanded family, demand runs high!
So while our history is not as long as some we do feel a strong connection to the place.”
