Have a whale of time this December

Kathie Baker

Last night I dreamt of my kids rushing out to the Christmas tree to discover no presents. Guess what I did the next day? Yes, you got it, went Christmas shopping. It’s that crazy time of year again and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Green&Gold celebrates its sixth edition this month and what better place to hold a function than at the Titanic Restaurant, Williamstown. Next month I’ll give a complete report on the success of the event, with all those embarrassing tell tale pictures.

As for this month, I thought we’d head to Tasmania, Wine Glass Bay, where I heard there where some whales “doing their thing”. This area is a stunning piece of Australia and well worth a trip, especially at this time of year.

Merimbula in NSW, has also been enjoying their own humpback whale show recently, but I’ve been told the whale season is coming to an end up there, leaving way for the dolphins to take the limelight. I took a trip to Merimbula, staying at the Capri Apartments. Our hosts Jenny and Greg made us feel really welcome, the accommodation took in great water views and was right in town, enabling us to park the car and use our legs to get around. Lots more to tell about these two stunning areas of Australia.

Have you checked out the Embassy@97 in Williamstown yet? I am slowly working my way through the menu—and feel like I am eating my way around Europe, without having to leave Australia. Lenny from the Embassy@97 delights his customers with magnificent European cuisine, using the freshest of Australian produce.

Make a booking and check it out for yourself, or enter the competition to win a lunch for 2.

With the Christmas holidays just around the corner, now is the time to think about some sightseeing. Check out Daylesford in this issue and also The Grampians. Wow, aren’t we fortunate to live in this “lucky country?”
