Terese is loving croc-free beaches
FOR Terese Cauchi, returning to the Valley made perfect sense.
"I left here to run a fresh food market in Cairns for a couple of years and then moved to Arnhem Land," she said.
"That was pretty amazing but one of the delights of being back here is being able to go to a beach that doesn't have a crocodile or a buffalo on it.
"There's such a lifestyle here in terms of what you do with your leisure time and surrounding yourself with beautiful environments and beautiful wildlife and fresh air."
Terese works as the restaurant and functions manager at the Yamba Shores Tavern.
She said one of the best things about being back in the Clarence Valley was living near the river.
"This region is just spectacular and the 400km of river has major significance in terms of history and the wildlife it supports," she said.
Terese said the river was so important to her she bought a house in Brushgrove which overlooks it.
