Who was Betty?

The Norman’s were three brothers, Arthur, Percy and John [Jnr] Norman whose family was some of the first European settlers in the area. John Norman whose wife was Mary arrived in 1795 and there family still hold a strong local presence. The Norman brothers used to live in “The Green House” at Mount Manypeaks.Betty’s Beach once known as Betty’s Bay was named after Betty Jones, she used to go camping and fishing there with her family. At that stage there were no real roads so it was a great adventure bouncing around in the back of a truck over bumps rocks and Blackboys to get to the fishing beaches. Camping out was a lot harder then as she had to make her own mattress out of dried seaweed but it did have a White cotton sheet to go over. She said, I learned how to catch fish and caught my first Fathead there. I walked miles with Dad to the best fishing spots and never saw anyone except the Norman Brothers who brought us milk from their farm at Manypeaks. My Sister Joy and I climbed over the rocks like little goats without any fear. On the day they left a family friend put up a sign made out of driftwood with charcoal writing naming it “Betty’s Bay”.
Betty’s Beach is or was a professional Salmon fishing beach. You will find a camping area and toilets.

Fishing.

A small bay beach which can be good fishing and walking is good in the area with caution on the rocks.
