Cronulla's residents rise early for dawn patrol and paddle all day to catch their last wave in an epic sunset session. Even for those who don't surf, this south-of-Sydney coastal town keeps its priorities simple. Cronulla spends its days soaking in the sun and sipping coffee and whiles away its evenings with cold beer and fresh fish and chips. Cronulla's residents are so fond of their coastal nook they gave it the nickname, "God's Own Country." Blessed, indeed.See 19 places to stay Save this neighborhood
