Melbourne Daily Photo
Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Scenic Sunday - Sugarloaf Dam
One of the lovliest spots for a picnic is up at Sugarloaf Reservoir Park which is located in the beautiful Christmas Hills - even the name sounds wonderful! There's a couple of beaut spots for a nice picinc, Ironbark Ridge and Saddle Dam. We went to Saddle Dam and the views were spectacular. It was a balmy 29º when we were here and you get a lovely fresh breeze at the top. There are no rubbish bins so you must take all yours with you and leave no footprint.
You can also bush walk, do a spot of fishing (rainbow trout, brown trout, redfin, roach or European carp) and even go sailing. If your lucky, you'll see the eastern grey kangaroos or black-tailed wallabies which live throughout the park. There was a family of overseas visitors from Vietnam and the lady asked me "Where are the kangaroo?" I had to explain there was no particular spot set aside for "viewing" - they are in a natural habitat.
Qoute for Today: I have no fear of losing my life - if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it. - Steve Irwin.
