Sedgers Reef Hotel in Iluka is a rambling barn of a joint that has seen better days. There has been talk about a rebuild when Iluka is connected to a reticulated sewerage scheme in 2013. Although Sedgers is falling down it does have a shabby unpretentious charm.
"Stuck on Sedgers Reef" is a famous if somewhat vanishing phrase in the Lower Clarence vernacular.
The expression refers to what men once said to their wives/girlfriends after arriving home after a fishing trip both late and drunk. In the context of the times, pre 1980's, it reflects both stereotypical male/female roles ( men out together fishing/drinking - wifey home looking after the kiddies) and the total social acceptance of driving a boat under the influence of alcohol.
