The thing I love about Ballina is the fresh seafood available there.

Paul Hogan ad about throwing a shrimp on the barbie and what a trumped up piece of BS that was, as nobody in Australia I ever knew threw prawns (we don't call them shrimp) on the BBQ.
Australians usually have only thrown sausages, steaks and onions on barbies.
The only time I ever saw someone throw a "shrimp" on the barbie was Paul Hogan in an ad to get American tourists over here when his film 'Crocodile Dundee' made him a star over there.

Although, this year being the Year of the Fire Monkey maybe there will be a few more prawns/shrimps thrown on the barbies in celebration of the fire element?-)
