The Thong Shack

Round Australia Road Trip #14

There’s a shrine on an isolated beach not far from the little coastal town of Denham. It doesn’t honour a deity and worshippers do not come on pilgrimage here. Nevertheless, it’s a shrine –  dedicated to the famous Australian fashion icon, the thong!

Are you thinking of that tiny, barely there undergarment? No it’s not that. Australians have another name for that.

We wear thongs on our feet. They’re durable, comfortable and casual; the perfect holiday footwear.


The Thong Shack is decorated with all types of thongs: large, small, pretty or plain. Many have been inscribed by their owners and pay homage to their wanderlust.



Where have you worn your thongs?
