How exciting is this time of year!

Here in Melbourne the daffodils and blossom herald in the Spring Season. What this means is that Melbourne is coming out of its Winter hibernation.

The Melbourne Show is on, the racing carnival is about to get under way and all the summer clothes are being dusted off and aired.

Lots of families hitting the outdoors with picnic hampers and plenty of things to do in Melbourne central as well as out into the Victorian countryside. Plenty to keep each weekend full of fun and exciting activities.

September is also a time for school holidays and I have plenty of suggestions that you and the kids will love.

For instance...

Coal Creek Heritge Village just on the outskirt of Korumburra in south east Gippsland has to be the most amazing place to explore the early coal mining industry.

Here, along with wonderful heritage buildings, olden day memrobilia and fascinating Victorian history, you and your family can experience what it would have been like to live in those early pioneering days.

That's just one day trip from Melbourne worth investigating.
Wander through the website and you will find plenty more suggestions.

I've started to write up a section on the fascinating Melbourne Markets. This is a subject dear to my heart as many years ago I used to travel the countryside 'doing' craft markets with my Australiana products.

Now I am on the other side of the stall holder's table and having a ball.

The market place has changed somewhat with the influx of Farmers' Markets opening up here, there and everywhere. to tell you the truth, I love these markets - fresh homemade produce, yummy delicious treats.

These along with incredibly clever arts and crafts makes Melbourne Markets a fascinating subject to concentrate on for awhile.

Enjoy each market as I get to review it and don't hesitate to let me know if there is one that you feel I should visit. Let me know here

The Future Of Family Getaways Melbourne

The Site is here to stay and I hope that you are enjoying exploring the pages as much as I do writing them up.

This coming month I will be out there exploring more of what Melbourne has to offer.

I think the section on Melbourne markets will hold my attention for some time yet :-)

That's all for this months Newsletter.

I hope that you are excited as I am with all the new developments happening on the website.

Don't forget to drop in and visit any of the markets I've reviewed so far and tell them Family Getaways Melbourne suggested that you do so.

Until next month. Cheers, Marylyn.
