Yes everyone goes to Melbourne for its beautiful beaches. You must have missed the announcement over the PA at the boat club.
'Don't take the brown acid'
Might be better not to mention beaches though, in your situation.
Melbourne - St Kilda beach a few km away.
Sydney - Bondi, or Manly ignoring the harbour beaches.
Hobart - Bellerive. Though this is stretching it, I'd admit. But it *is* a decent beach.
Perth - Cottesloe.
Brisbane - err, well, Brisbane doesn't *actually* have a beach at all. It's a muddy river city.
