For campers at Portarlington surnames do not matter, sometimes they are not even known for years. It is about friendship and community, where summer acquaintances become lifetime friends and even partners. This particular group represents six families spread over ‘Row A’ campsites. Jess and baby Spencer (daughter in law and grandson of Rob and Jan), Jenny, Marj, Rob (husband of Jan), Barry (husband of Marj), John (husband of Wanda), Jan, Wanda, Peter, Marilyn (wife of Jeff), Jeff and Nicky (grandson of Marilyn and Jeff) kneeling in front. They epitomise the family traditions and social dynamics that exist widely throughout holiday parks along the Bellarine Peninsula, Surf Coast and Great Ocean Road.
