V is for Violet Town, Victoria; Venus Bay in Victoria

Continuing the A-Z of Australian country towns with attendant haiku, today is the letter V.

I’d love to hear from you about these posts. Please use the “Leave a comment” link just below the title of the post.

Violet Town
Violet Town is an active community that draws on the talents of the community. It started life as a stop on the arduous journey between Melbourne and Sydney in the middle of the 19th century. It’s still a good spot to take a break even though the highways of today make travel so much easier.

Venus Bay
Located on the bay of the same name, Venus Bay is an idyllic spot in southern Gippsland in Victoria. The usually small population is overtaken in holiday season as anglers, surfers and families escape from Melbourne for a break.
