10 reasons to visit Melbourne in January!

This is the best time of year in Melbourne. 
We're in that post Christmas euphoria, with the whole summer ahead of us. Melbourne is quiet (well in the suburbs!), some firms have extended closures, and with the school holidays stretching ahead until the end of January, many families take the opportunity to remain at the beach and commute to and from Melbourne. 

Here's why January is a great time of year to visit!

1. Weather: apparently as a country we boast one of the warmest year round climates in the world.

So, if you don't like the weather at the time, no worries mate. Soooooo perfect for those stinking hot Christmases when everything melts! January weather is the best. February can be even hotter!

Inverloch Surf Lifesaving Club Gippsland, Victoria 'Saving lives, preventing injuries, enjoying the water'
Summer in Melbourne is about being at the beach. There are 57 surf lifesaving clubs in Victoria offering summer programs for kids as young as 5 years old.  Swimming is a necessary life skill in Victoria, the surf life saving clubs offer a fantastic way to learn how to be safe in the acquatic environment, to get fit and to make friends. Inverloch's SLSC has one of the best surf beaches in Victoria and their Little Nippers program, looks a lot of fun!
It's easy to see why Inverloch is a popular holiday destination. We love the surf beach here, you can walk a long way. The Gippsland coastline is dog friendly, here the Crazy Poodle and his great mate Spurt, enjoy some off lead fun. Getting them to sit still long enough for a photo was quite a challenge!

My Sunday Photo
I love Australian beaches just look at it!  The vast expanse of golden sand and only an occasional surfer.
You need to be an experienced surfer to tackle this surf, to avoid the rips and rocks, and not to mention the odd shark lurking about.
Happy Hols!
