Coledale Camping Reserve is a much loved local spot to enjoy a peaceful break by the sea - it boasts an absolute water-frontage for dozens of campers and is especially popular during Easter.

Norm is retiring this month (April 2014), so the Coledale Surf Life Saving Club is seeking a new Camp Manager, ideally a couple or single person. This is a 7-day a week live on site position.
