Welcome to Cygnet
Groovy Cygnet likes to wear its hair long. Originally named Port de Cygne Noir (Port of the Black Swan) by Bruni d’Entrecasteaux, after the big noir birds that cruise around the bay, it's been youthfully reincarnated as Cygnet (a baby swan) and is a town where free-flight living is the norm – a dreadlocked, artsy enclave that also functions as a major fruit-producing centre. Weathered farmers and banjo-carrying hippies chat amiably outside vegetarian cafes in the main street and share blanket space at the annual folk festival. To the south, the fine beaches at Randalls Bay and Verona Sands aren’t far away.
