Show us your mussels

A group from the Combined Probus Club of Maroondah recently spent a rainy, but nonetheless enjoyable, day at the annual Portarlington Mussel Festival.

The trip to the festival was almost as enjoyable as the event itself, involving a train trip followed by a scenic ferry ride on the Port Phillip ferry service.

Much to their delight, the group were met by flocks of white birds on the jetty, before venturing into the festival. There were over 200 stalls, cooking demonstrations, beer, wine and gin tastings and, of course, mussel tastings.

The group also enjoyed live musical performances throughout the day.
