Norfolk Island, Australia - May, 2012

Have just visited Norfolk Island, about two hours from Sydney, Australia. 

Slaughter Bay has an abundance of green, amber and clear frosted glass.  I found a few specks of dark blue and half a red glass bead.

Lots of glass on Malabar beach, Sydney, in the common colours.  I also found a frosted pale blue glass bead.

Last year I found a frosted glass bottle stopper on Delwood beach near Manly.  The top was worn flat on one side. 

There is a lot of glass on each of these beaches, although mostly the common colours.  You have to look closely to find anything unusual.     

Enjoy Australias beaches:

Where are all the Aussie sea glass collectors? Our beaches are a treasure trove of seaglass. My favourite cove-like beach is covered in millions of pebbles.

Fairy Bower near Manly - Sea Glass Report
by: Gail

Fairy Bower is one of Sydney's northern beaches.

I found the bottom of a 1860 Hamilton Soda bottle and the next week I went back and found the rim - now I just need the middle part!

I have found yellows and pinks on this beach too!
