My kinda Town Port Albert Is!

I have mentioned this little town in a previous post and it continues to be a favourite place to visit.

Port Albert in the early 1800's was the busiest Port next to Melbourne in Victoria. 2000 people lived within a 4 mile radius of the town. However, when the train line to Sale was introduced shipping to Gippsland took a backseat to the safer passage of goods via the railway.
