BRETT O'Keefe loves his town. And it's no wonder.

Burringbar is set amongst rainforest and just a few minutes from the beach.

"It's a great little town,' he said.

Mr O'Keefe is the local butcher and produces all his own meat.

"It's important to give people quality meat," he said.

Liz Beale runs the Post Office at Burringbar.

"I came here in a moment of madness," she said.

"But it's grown on me."

Originally from Gippsland, she found the business on the internet.

Vicki Edwards is one of many partners who run the general store at Burringbar.

She has lived there for 22 years.

"It's a beautiful place.

"I'll never leave."

The shop sells everything from fancy lamp shades through to the "best coffee in Australia".

Outside the shop is an old wooden bench.

"The locals call it the seat of knowledge," Ms Edwards said.

"There's many a philosophical conversation held around that bench seat.

"We can have scores of people chatting over a cup of coffee at any one time."

Fiona Thompson also loves her town.

"It's a great spot," she said.

"I call it paradise because it has everything."

She has lived in the area for 22 years, originally coming from Yelgun.

"My two dogs also love the town," she said.

"It's a very friendly little place."
