This Summer by the Sea event is just fantastic and very few people seem to know about it........
......I don't know why as it's been going 17 years now and it's got events suitable for everyone.
It's on every January and lasts about three weeks.
There's over 300 free activities in 80 locations by the sea in Melbourne.
We went on the St Kilda Walk on the Wild Side event.......
........We learnt all sorts of things about plants, the landscape, what happens if you build a breakwater without taking tide flows into account (like they did!), and about pollution in the water........
.......Then we ambled along the beach looking at sea creatures which had been washed up on the sands.......
........And did you know there's a colony of penguins you can see for free on the breakwater? I hadn't known till I read about this tour........
.......Take a look at my St Kilda Penguins page.
I also did a kayak trip at Beaumaris for one and a half hours and a Rockpool Ramble - all free!
There's all sorts of other things to do too like learning about sea creatures at the Dolphin Research Centre, geology trips to uncover fossils,.......
........birdwatching, fishing workshops, snorkelling, beach photography workshops, free breakfasts for dogs/owners and loads more too.
