Real Name
Someone in the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has a sense of humour!

1080 Beach is located just south of Mystery Bay on the far South Coast of New South Wales (as in Australia). Some people may know that 1080 is a poison used to control wild dogs and rabbits, very popular with the NPWS. The story is that this beach was known as Tilba Lake Beach after a nearby coastal lake but the locals named it after the poison baits that are commonly used in National Parks to keep the feral animals in check. At some stage, NWPS has adoped this name and it has stuck.

All photos (other than #1) taken with an Olympus E-P1 and Olympus M.Zuiko 9-18mm zoom. First shot taken with the kit zoom set to 14mm.
