Copacabana was named after Rio's famous beach by local developers in the 1950's and has grown up to become one of the Central Coasts' most popular beachside suburbs.

Copacabana beach stretches from the headland of 'First Point' at its most northerly end to the beautiful Cochrone Lagoon. Here the beach becomes MacMasters Beach which runs to the southern headland of 'Second Point'. The headlands were named by Caption Cook and used as navigational aids during his first visits to the region.

The indigenous names for the area are somewhat more appealing. The northern headland of Copacabana beach is Tudibaring Point, which means 'place where the waves pound like a beating heart, the bay itself is Allagai bay, which means 'nest of snakes'.

I can't say I've seen any snakes around Copacabana beach whilst I've been photographing the area. Maybe sunrises aren't their thing ;-)
