Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.

Stir in the salt and vanilla extract.

Place coconut, sugar, flour in a bowl. Add the melted butter mixture and mix until well combined.

Press the mixture thinly into the bottom of the prepared tin.

Bake in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes until golden.

Make the caramel: melt the butter in a saucepan and add the condensed milk, golden syrup and salt.
