SUMMERY MORDIALLOC

Mordialloc is a suburb in Melbourne, Australia, 24 km south-east from Melbourne's central business district. Its Local Government Area is the City of Kingston. At the 2006 Census, Mordialloc had a population of 7524. The name is derived from the Aboriginal term "moordy yallock", which translates roughly to "muddy creek." Mordialloc Post Office opened on 17th October 1863.

Mordialloc Creek is arguably the most significant feature of the suburb. Mordialloc Creek has a rich history of traditional wooden boat building. The Creek is still home to Pompei's boat works. Many classic boats line the walls of the creek and may still be admired today. Cafés, hotels and refreshment kiosks may also be found around the creek near its mouth near the sea. Looking at these photos taken in Summer, I'm longing for some nice warm weather...

  4. Sitting on the veranda in summer, overlooking the water, must be the best place anywhere to enjoy cold drinks.

  5. This little spot is such a fascinating spot Nick. It is quite unique to find a navigable inlet like in our suburbs.
