    Suggestions:
    Point Lonsdale (yes, coffee nearby too...)
    Swan Bay foreshore
    Barwon Heads (mangroves)/The Bluff / 13th Beach (not in bad weather!!)
    Waterfront / Steampacket (coffee never more than 300m away...)
    Avalon Beach (old boat sheds)
    Werribee South (even older boat sheds)

    Anglesea / Anglesea River
    Fairhaven Beach
    ... the further you go along here, the prettier it gets.
    Lorne / Erskine River (upstream, e.g. The Sanctuary)
    Henderson Falls (easy walk)

    Where else?

    North Shore, for those wanting a little industry... Never been to the You Tangs or Dog Rocks, are they worth the while?

    Pt Lonsdale for me. Front and back beach. Rock formations. Cliched piers. Lighthouse. Cemetery. Sunrise if you're there at Sparrows'...

    • Dock Rocks Batesford has a definite 'pull' in terms of attractiveness, but it varies with the weather: dark and stormy days can give it a most forboding look. If it rains (nowhere to hide!), it doesn't then look forboding, just miserable.
    • Old Monier Bridge Fyansford (esp. autumn)

    I have not been to the You Yangs for decades; but out there on the lonely basalt plains around Lara and Little River one can come across early settlers' ruins.

    Got a visitor here from Geelong Camera Club now. Dinna will now be served. 'Night!

    Pt Lonsdale gives a few different options by the sound of it. As for dates not 1&2 of Sept as that's the Melb CC exhibition weekend (come along) and the 16 is box hill photo market.

    If Pt Lonsdale is the go, can I suggest picking a date around the tides? I think one real attraction of this place is the amazing rock formations hiding below the water. Low tide they're visible, low low tide and they can be incredible, plus better, ie, safer, access to the tunnel at the very end of the point... come to think of it, even just that spot around the lighthouse could satisfy the naturists (naturalists? Sorry Gary, you'll have to remind me again which is which ) and the Industrialists, with the old gun turrets etc.

    A quick squiz on Mr Tides says there's some low, almost Spring Tide looking levels coming up on the weekend of the 25th, with a low around lunchtime... next weekend, too soon?

    Naturists (nudies) at Point Lonsdale!? Come off the glue, son! Naturalists yes, similar to Sir David Rabbitburrow...

    I agree with the rock formations though, but these look far better in sunset or sunrise light. I have Ilfochrome prints to prove it.
    The other option is very low tide in the evening where you can walk quite some way out and photograph the lighthouse, with its reflection in still rockpools. B&W folks may not care much for the lighting but the entire area is a treat when the sun goes down.

    I have a roadie to the Flinders Ranges/Port Augusta from mid-September, likely around 16th onward.

    Absolutely agree, I was just thinking of the poor big-city fellas who sound like they want to be well beyond our city limits before nightfall!

    Kill 2 stones with the one bird and do a Satdee night/Sundee morning shoot?

    I'd like to do this in late Sept, perhaps 22nd/23rd?
