The City of Bayside is a Local Government Area in Melbourne. It is located in the southern suburbs, with an area of 36 square kilometres and an estimated population of about 100,000 people. It comprises the City of Brighton, City of Sandringham, City of Moorabbin, City of Mordialloc and City of Bayside. As well as having quite exclusive and very expensive real estate by the seaside in Brighton, for example, it also has areas of industrial and business park usage, as in Moorabbin.

Lately we have had hot Summer weather and we went for a drive down the coastal road, visiting Elwood, Brighton, Hampton and Sandringham. The sea was perfect and there were many bathers, sail boat and motor boat enthusiasts, as well as the jet ski devotees. Many lovely beaches exist along this stretch of Melbourne's suburban coast, so it is a popular are for fun in the sea and sun. Add to that large numbers of great caf├ęs, restaurants and all sorts of other eateries and you have the recipe for a perfect weekend outing.

  3. Oh, that water looks like it needs being jumped in. So clear. I want to imagine it's warm.

  4. My favourite part of Australia! The sand and water look perfect.

    I went to the Australian Tennis today and wished I was on the beach instead. The tennis was too hot, too humid and no moving air :(
