This showcase of photographs from the National Archives of Australia vividly reminds us of Australians' enduring love affair with the sun and the sea.


Taken in the 1950s and 1960s by photographers working for the Australian News and Information Bureau, they show an innocent Australia - a relaxed and comfortable place where everyone knew their neighbours and seldom locked their doors.


Summer holidays were always the best of times and for today's baby boomers the exhibition images are bound to stir distant memories of idyllic days spent at the beach.
