Growing Up In Stockton

There's plenty of history available about 'Pirate Point' aka Stockton, Newcastle NSW! 

And although the early days pre -1900 or so were probably a 'little rough'... growing up there in the 50's and 60's as a young kid was pretty amazing.

So amazing in fact that as kids we were probably a little 'spoilt' compared to kids of the same age in other suburbs around the country.

Why? - Well for me it was because we had unlimited access to a river, sand dunes, an amazing surf, a great 'culture' of local sport, good schools and a community that really seemed to actually like and support each other!
