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.

Part of the Mornington Peninsula, Portsea Pier is about 125 metres long with a right-angle extension of another 80 metres or so. Built from timber, the right side is used by the many charter boats to pick up and drop off their clients. The beginning of the pier crosses over the sand about 15 metres before reaching the water.
Portsea is the hub of Melbourne's scuba diving and the pier is home to the Seahorse and the Weedy Seadragon, which is Victoria's marine faunal emblem. (Melbourne is the capital city of Victoria)
In January, Portsea hosts the Portsea Pro-Am Classic, the Pier to Pub Swim, the Melbourne to Hobart and Melbourne to Davenport Yacht Races and the Portsea Swim Classic.
