Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ This tiny clubhouse overlooks the sands of Mills Beach on Port Phillip Bay, Mornington Peninsula.
But look at the sign on the right!
So strange that the No Parking sign has been placed by the Country Fire Authority when a heap of water is right at the door!
And it is almost impossible to park there because the driveway is on a steep rocky/sandy slope!
But there is another surprise!
The film "On the Beach" (1959) was filmed at Canadian Bay and the clubhouse was used as the film's operating headquarters. When it was released with Gregory Peck, Ava Gardiner and Fred Astaire in the leading roles Canadian Bay got a great deal of publicity and the membership rose quite quickly.
