    Melbourne outing in August

    A thread from last year has been re-opened, with one of the discussions being another photographic outing.

    I propose that we have an outing in August, say around the middle of the month, maybe Saturday the 14th.

    I suggest we go to a regional destination, with actual photographing being the main event.

    I mentioned in the other thread that we (the missus and I) intend doing some photographic excursions during winter and into spring. Some of them being Kilcunda and the Brisbane ranges national park.

    The discussion wended it's way around a few things and the Pinnacles on Phillip Island came up.

    Another place could be Queenscliff and the Historic train station, not to mention the abundance of Steam trains and carriages, just itching to be photographed.

    I open the discussion.

    Mick.

    The 14th Aug is fine for us - I would love to go anywhere than isn't the Botanical Gardens, that has a decent coffee/lunch spot, and something interesting to photograph!!

    Week beginning 9th August I'm booked for a 4-night sortie around Wilsons Prom, so The Pinnacles at Woolamai are a fav for me on 14th (en route home), then Tassie. Pinnacles is a place of dramatic landforms (and equally dramatic surprise waves) so some protection needs to be taken for exposed cameras against spray. Simple eateries nearby but nothing too flash. Anything up the ladder is further down the blacktop in Cowes, now sadly sans-Isle of Wight pub.

    Ah! That makes more sense. I'll be out at Mirboo North by then so Wilson's Prom sounds good...

    Ah-ha! There's also Noojee!
    Just out of town, the delightful Toorongo Narrows, rainforest, 2 waterfalls (much more sedate than the Otways) and the bonus of quite decent eateries in the main street — though not a great deal else in the former timber town.
