This is Our Rosebud

Okay, so not ours as in we own it. Or ours in the sense of how I was talking about Rosebud yesterday…but this is our Rosebud in that here in Victoria, Australia, down the Mornington Peninsula is a lovely little coastal town called Rosebud.

The Fashion Mister and I are fans of the Mornington Peninsula as there are some fantastic wines made in the region! Plenty of cool climate wines, Pinot Noir and Sauv Blanc and when you get to some of the flatter areas near Cape Shank and Rosebud, some really nice Shiraz too.

Originally called Banksia Point in 1850, the fishing village eventually became known as Rosebud thanks to the name of a shipwreck that was washed up on shore. After the locals cleared off all the booty from the ship, damask and household goods, the locals eventually stripped the ship of its wood to build many of the homes and buildings in town which lead to the area being called “The Rosebud” and eventually shortened to Rosebud.

Camping on the Rosebud foreshore during the Christmas and New Years holidays has become a multi-generational tradition for many Melbourne families. Some families have been camping at Rosebud for the summer holidays for four and five generations. It has become so popular that most reservations are made at least a year in advance.

So even though Rosebud may not be our Rosebud (the Fashion Mister and I), it certainly would seem to be plenty of other Aussie’s Rosebud!
