Australias’ Nude Olympics moving to New South Wales

Queensland has lost a nudist event worth $2 million-a-year to New South Wales.

Tnude olympics photohe annual Nude Olympics, which pulls more than 600 people a year to Noosa’s Alexandria Bay has been cancelled. The Australian Naturist Federation decided on the move after police  started to fine nude men swimming in Alexandra Bay with wilful exposure. Nude women were not fined.

The event, organised by the Australian Naturist Federation, will now be held this March at Byron Bay, either at its legal Tyagarah nude beach or the north Belongil Beach. Negotiations have already  begun with Byron Shire Council to hold the 2017 Nude Olympics at Belongil Beach.

ANF spokesman Stuart Whelan – who owns a naturists’ retreat in New South Wales – said the decision meant several million dollars in accommodation and restaurant takings was now lost to Noosa.

“We are talking several million dollars that will no longer be going through the local economy,” Mr Whelan said.

The logic of the decision to begin arresting nude male bathers, but not nude female bathers is frankly bizarre. Not only is it discriminatory and sexist but it will cost the local economy dear. I can only assume it was taken to demonstrate a smug sense of PC-ness on the part of the authorities.

Yet another case of the growing sanctimonious puritanism which is becoming so popular right now? It is replacing common-sense and in this case costing real money.

Let’s hope the voters remember.

Naturism dying on Western Australian Beach?

Broome Nudist Beach

Since the 1960s, naturists have gathered on a section of Broome’s famous Cable Beach known as “north of the rocks”, to sunbake, fish and swim in the nude.
But veterans of the scene say about a decade ago, things began to change. The local tourism industry boomed, and suddenly, the nudists were coming under close scrutiny.
Read this great article on the decline of nudism in the area. And if you can, get along there, strip off, and give the local nudists some support!

World’s best nude events and beaches revealed

Trip Advisor, the travel website  has announced the winners of top 5 nude events and top 5 nude beaches. Quite what criteria they used, and who carried out the judging is unknown, but here are the results according to Trip Advisor.

The top five naked events :

1. World Naked Bike Ride
Held annually since 2004, bike riders from all around the world celebrate cycling in the nude.

2. World Record Skinny Dip
More than 12,000 people stripped off and gathered in pools across the US to form the “largest number of people skinny dipping at once,” now a category in the Guinness Book of World Records.

3. Nude Beach Olympics
The Nude Olympics take place on Australia’s sunny Maslin Beach.

4. Running of the Nudes
Held in Pamplona just after the annual “Running of the Bulls”, this is an event organised by PETA to protest against the cruelty of bullfighting.An alternative to the running of the

5. Burning Man Festival
An annual event held in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada, which usually includes large amounts of human nudity.

Top five nudist beaches

1. Haulover Beach Park Florida

2. Wreck Beach Canada

3. Paradise Beach, Mykonos

4. Orient Beach, St.Maarten, Caribbean.

5. Black’s Beach, California.

I don’t disagree too much with Trip Advisor  on the events, except that I ‘m surprised that The Burning Man Festival was chosen over seriously  nude events like  the World Body Painting Festival in Austria or De Blote Billen Loop (Zandvoort, Netherlands –people have to run or walk 5 km in the nude, on a nude beach)  or even  the Valentine’s Day Nude Bungee Jump in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada.

With regard to the beaches, well, I guess it’s entirely subjective, so who am I to argue, except to say that Paradise Beach was overtaken years ago by Panormos beach on the north of Mykonos and neither of those two would get into my top five! In fact my list would include only two of the Trip Advisor selection.

Still, it all depends on what makes a beach the best for you, and until you’ve visited them all how can you judge which is the best in the world?

Guess I’d better get packing. So much to see, so little time…
