A few days ago, you may have recalled me writing a post about Springtime @ Melbourne
Today’s post is going to be along similar lines but will be dedicated to Summertime @ Melbourne. Like Spring, Summer is another one of my favourite months. Simply said, I like it when the sun is out, the skies are blue and the weather is warm.
Summer in Melbourne can be massively bipolar, with 40 degree days and then a plummet to the mid twenties the next. You can get very humid days with little sun and hot wind, you can get days where the sun is out in full blast, you can get days of summer-rain, and sometimes it even feels a bit chilly too.
I am not so much a beach person but Melbourne is home to heaps and heaps of beaches and coastal cities and towns. Head on over to the down-south and you will find yourself indulging in summer cocktails with stretches of beach and sea ahead of you. Of particular interest is St. Kilda beach which isn’t too far from the CBD. In fact, it is only 20 min by car! Here you can find Melbourne’s own little theme park called Luna Park. It may be small but it is packed with roller-coasters and market stalls.
Only 10 car trip from St Kilda is Brighton Beach. This beach is famous for its very pretty and colorful beach houses.
Let’s travel further down south, and here you will find the seaside city of Mornington Peninsula. It is a diverse area filled with beaches, restaurants and cafes of all sorts, vineyards and even horse riding!
Heading to the south-east region of Gippsland is the famous 90 Mile Beach. I went during Yr 8 camp. Back then I knew nothing about photography so had no photos of the beautiful place. All I know is 90 Mile Beach is unlike the beaches I just mentioned. it is more remote and natural without the busy buzzes of city life. In fact, it is a beautiful hidden paradise.
