Our last 2 day trips

Tho i've been back fr Melb for 2 mths+, i'm missing the place almost everyday. And i'm not finish blogging about my life there yet. lol. So here's my last 2 day trips in Melb b4 heading back KL.


Philip Island

Finally went to Penguin Island with mom & Yumeko. Jeremy din join us as he went with his parents while they were there. The whole package includes Cattle Farm, Koala Reservation Centre and Philip Island itself. First stop, Cattle farm..

baaa...baa... white sheep have u any wool?

Meet Mr. Kangaroo again...

Besides sheeps and kangaroos, there were wombats, cows, & ostriches in the farm .

Next stop, Koala Reservation Centre.

Wow... this is a huge one!

Nah, tat's the fake one.. Now, here's the real thing..

Ermm... this is interesting...

Dinner time! Reached a small town in Philip Island.. Had pizza for dinner...

Lovely beach! Woo Hoo...


Finally, our last destination of the day.. The penguin parade...

Oh.. b4 that, our tour guide stopped by at this magnificent place called The Noobies. Its famous for their rugged rocky outcrop. Nice huh...

We saw this very cute signage outside the parking lot. lol.

We were told that no photography is allowed on the beach. :( So must buy some souveniers back as memory..

Oh, for those who are not sure wat we did in penguin parade, we were practically stood by the beach side for hours jus to see those cute lil' penguins waddle back to their burrows. (penguin's home)

When the sunsets, penguins started to appear. Visitors were tremendously enthusiastic. We were told to remain silence as noises might frightened them too. Those lil' creatures were really tiny. As big as a seagull.

They only waddle back after sunset as that's the best time to avoid predators bcos its dark compared to day time. I can tell those penguins were really cautious and always waddle in a big group and really fast.

Nice trip overall. No regrets!


How Great is the Ocean?

Another trip with fellow Union Street. The Great Ocean Road is a must go destination for the amazing 12 Apostles in Melb. I reckon its no longer 12, probably 8? or less.

We went to a few beaches b4 heading to the 12 Apostles. It was a really long journey there. Approx 2 hrs? or more than that. The roads were narrow n windy till i suffered carsick.

Dont remember which beach was this but it was a nice one!

Told ya its a nice one...

The starting of great ocean road.

Here we are... A hot sunny day with darn loads of annoying FLIES again!

Another view..

Nice.. nice.. Cant take my camera off the rocks!

Next, another beach... if i'm not mistaken, this place is called Loch Arch Gorge. Look how beautiful the rock formation is.

It seems there was a sad story behind this place... (enlarge to read)

Wrap up with a groupie!

Oh, another beach b4 heading back to Melbourne. Its the Remains of London Bridge. Heard that this rock formation was formerly stuck together with the rock on the left hand side. The middle part dissapeared thanks to the strong waves. No idea y they name it London Bridge. Probably it looks like a bridge?

Sick of beaches yet? You will never will when u were there.. Such an amazing place. Its the GREAAAAAAAAT Ocean Road!
