Let’s explore Melbourne and surrounds via public transport on the first Sunday of the month.
Pack a picnic lunch and we can buy coffee and ice creams along the way and enjoy the sights, the journey and each others company…..

Our first outing will be to Seaholme.
Catching the train from Sunbury train station to Seaholme train station.
We meet at Sunbury Station at 9.20am to catch the 9.36am train to Footscray where we change trains.
This trip will involve 2 train changes of about 1 and half hours travelling.
We shall then walk approximately 20 minutes along the bay under the old pine trees on the esplanade (plenty of shade) up to Altona pier.

Altona pier has just undergone a huge redevelopment, part of the $24 million Piers and Jetties stimulus package so will be interesting to see how our money has been spent!
There is a beautiful park on the corner for us to have our picnic lunch under the Moreton bay figs.

There are also heaps of coffee & icecream shops.
Who knows maybe a paddle on the beach and a spot of window shopping in Altona. Then Home via Altona station.

Suggest you wear your walking shoes, bring a hat and sunscreen and don’t forget a water bottle. You will need to bring your MYKI card as even though travel for seniors on the weekend is free, you still need to swipe on and off.

7/7/24, 4/8/24, 1/9/24, 3/11/24, 1/12/24
