Well, my fellow fabric-shunning nature friends,
I am of the younger "digital native" generation. Yet this is my first ever blog post....
Why? Because I have a passion and a deep concern about something I adore, which seems to be increasingly shunned by mainstream society. Nudism/naturism/whatever you want to call the act of enjoying nature (often public) undressed, without fear of persecution.
This public opinion in itself doesn't bother me so much; but the stigma of the "shadier elements" of public nudity jeopardises my favourite thing about my city - north swanbourne beach.
Back in November 2011 I went on a 5 hour nude bushwalk in the Blue Mountains National Park, it was in a remote area of the park where I knew I would be unlikely to encounter any other people, so I could enjoy nature in the nude without offending anyone.
I would like to think that I am showing the world how to it is possible to be naked in a non sexual manner.
I walked down the almost trackless cliffs into the valley which only took about 25mins, but to come back out took almost 1 hour to crawl/scramble back up the cliff's.
The annual nude beach carnival at Samurai Beach at Anna Bay near Nelson Bay in NSW Australia is being held on Saturday the 4th of February 2012, this event is organised by CAVN (Coast And Valley Naturists)
Last years event attracted over 300 nude participants from all ages, they had egg & spoon/sack races (I came 2nd) hole in the bucket races & a nude body painting competition.

Not specifically a naturist B. & B., but clearly, staying with Bob Reed means that you could not be better informed regarding the naturist lifestyle in NSW, Australia, the World!!

A billboard for bodycare brand Ecoya, which features a naked woman straddling a horse, has been blocked from running on outdoor sites in Australia.
The Outdoor Media Association deemed that the ad – which was permitted to run in New Zealand – breached its code of ethics and did not treat sex and nudity with due sensitivity, and would be seen by children as well as its target audience of adult women.
The image is running on Ecoya’s website, with a number of others of naked women with animals. Ecoya’s New Zealand-based chairman Geoff Ross said he had also tried to run an image of a woman posing with an owl on Australian billboards. But that was also refused by the OMA.
Page has been taken down because of many broken links.
