I don't surf, but growing up in the Eastern Suburbs I certainly spent my fair share of time at the beach. Having said that, Camp Cove or Nielsen Park are probably still two of my favourites. I did grow up about 10 minutes walk from both so I'm probably a bit biased!
haha
show off.
That Nielson park looks pretty good. Might have to check that out.

I've warmed to Sydney, but I'm still a Melbourne girl

Don't get me wrong I love Melbourne, great bars and food. I do remember being down there 8 or 9 years ago for the tennis and the day we arrived it was 40 degrees and the next day it was 10. WTF!

Oh I know what you mean about the jacket thing. I have a couple of friends from Melbourne they are always taking a jacket with them.

I've always advocated dressing for where you are going, not how you're getting there. Hence today I'm wearing shorts and a t-shirt (with a down vest). I do get some funny looks.
