Altona Beach is Melbourne's best kept secret. Beautiful white sand, shallows for the kids to safely play, rockpool's, fish for whiting or snapper off the pier. Across the road is an amazing park, bbq and picnic facilities along with a fantastic playground for the kids. Summer weekends bring a picnic blanket and join the locals for a movie or music.

Tuesday in Altona is Market day. Wander through the park and pick up some fresh veggies, local produce or a homemade pressie or two.

Pier St is lined with great cafe's, bars and restaurants. Our fav has got to be Hangar 12, flexible menu and amazing coffee. Friendly staff.
