I write for Weekend Notes and I take photographs, usually sunsets and sunrises. Occasionally I include my photos in my articles. I like to promote Geelong, and activities around Geelong.

Day Out With Thomas

Head to Queenscliff in October 2016 for a Day Out With Thomas. Everybody loves Thomas and when you head to Queenscliffe, you can get up close to Thomas the Tank Engine at the Bellarine Railway. He is everybody's favourite steam engine!

When Thomas the Tank Engine comes back to Queenscliffe in October, the whole family will enjoy a day out with Douglas, Oliver, Henry, Salty and the Troublesome Trucks. Take unlimited rides with Thomas in the Troublesome Trucks, take a steam train ride to Laker's Siding behind one of Thomas' Friends. The children can meet Sir Topham Hatt and shake his hand.
