Coogee man tries making his friends in Positano jealous by posting a selfie at Gordon’s Bay

DIGGING DEEP: Like many Australians, local man Gary Sirocco can’t afford to go overseas this winter.

“It’s been difficult seeing my friends relentlessly posting photos from idyllic European locations,” he told DBT.

“So I thought I’d give them a taste of what they’re missing back home.”

This morning, in an ambitious attempt to outshine his friends vacationing in Italy’s Positano, the 29 year old posted a selfie from Gordon’s Bay in Sydney’s east.

He captioned the post: “Who needs Positano when you have Gordon’s Bay! #WishYouWereHere #Wunderlust”

“I’ve always thought Gordon’s Bay has a certain European beach vibe,” he says.

“It took me almost an hour to find parking there, but it was worth it for the photo.”

However his bid to incite envy fell flat, with his post only attracting 5 likes.

Feeling dejected, Gary Sirocco says he plans to spend this afternoon drowning his sorrows alone at the Coogee Bay Hotel.
