At Nambucca Heads, on the NSW mid north coast, one of the cultural attractions is graffiti â€“ of the mum-and-dad-and-the-kids variety â€“ applied in house paint to the twin breakwaters called the â€˜Vee-Wallâ€™. It all started in the 1960s and now photographs of the wall are featured on postcards and tourist brochures
Read the messages and you will find stories of people who have enjoyed their holiday at Nambucca and want others to know it. Honeymooners who have returned to find they still love the place (and each other). Families who come back year after year, adding the names of new babies to the family rock. Overseas tourists who want to leave their mark on Australia. Teenagers who reveal their current crushes. Names, dates, tributes to Nambucca and thanks to God are all here, many decorated with pictures of family members or the fish they caught.
