Woy Woy - The Venice of Australia

 A result of the National Film & Sound Archive, this movie is 7 minutes in length and can be found on YouTube.

See it here.

In this 1934 film by Claude Flemming, a 
couple make a trip to Woy Woy by train
and visit the various attractions including - Woy Woy Bowling Club, a cruise on Woy Woy Bay, Ettalong Beach, Ocean Beach, Pearl Beach, a trip through The Rip, Patonga and Staples Lookout.
The wonderful scenery, beaches, mountains, horse riding and fishing are featured. 
The narrator tells a little of the history of the area and recommends the location as an ideal holiday destination.

"The narration is quaint to say the least, and owes much to the Benny Hill School of comedy."

 

Graham Shirley posted this extra information on YouTube - 
 "It is indeed a period gem of a film. According to articles accessed via Trove Digitised Newspapers, it was commissioned by Woy Woy Council in Dec 1935 and completed by Mar 1936.  It is not known when its public premiere took place, but it was screened privately at Newcastle's Civic Theatre in May 1936. Director-narrator Claude Flemming appears periodically throughout the film - initially arriving at railway station, after which he plays lawn bowls and takes a boat trip. Flemming also directed Peter Finch's first but now-lost film, 'The Magic Shoes', at Pagewood Studios, Sydney, in the mid-1930s."
