AFTER six Melbourne lockdowns and homeschooling in the past two years, the Baillie family is sticking to the tradition with their annual summer vacation in Warrnambool. The Baillies are one of many Warrnambool local and expatriate families who have enjoyed camping in their hometown. Atti (11) and Edison (9) moved with their parents from Warrnambool to Melbourne eleven years ago, but they continue to move back to the beach town every summer. For Edison, who can spend his birthday on vacation, the trip is something very special. “All of our family and friends get together for a big barbecue,” Edison said. The family is spending three weeks at Surfside Holiday Park in Warrnambool. IN OTHER NEWS: You are the fourth generation of the Baillie family who camps in Warrnambool annually. The tradition was started in 1955 by her great-grandfather, who was running a business at the time. The vacation at home enabled him to continue working during the vacation. “All of our family lives in Warrnambool, so it’s a great place to meet up with family and friends from Melbourne and Camperdown and even those from Warrnambool,” said Atti. “This campsite is the perfect place to hang out with people of all ages, have great adventures and go to the beach.” The siblings said they were excited to be spending New Years Eve with other families at the campsite and enjoyed eating the churros made by the families with Chilean backgrounds who were also at the campsite. The Baillies also attend the Warrnambool Family Carnival on the shores of Lake Pertobe. The family were also lucky enough to visit Warrnambool between lockdowns last year, but were only able to spend a week in town and the remaining weeks of the trip in Narrawong.
