The Nobbies and Penguins

As well as visiting the koalas, we went see see the Nobbies (OK we were filling in ’til we could see the Penguin Parade).

After the heat, it was nice to have a cool breeze.

Now gulls…

…are basically flying rats…

but this chick was quite cute.

It was lovely to see a penguin burrow…

…with two chicks in.

We couldn’t take photos at the Penguin Parade, so here’s my last pic from Aus. A glance at infinity.

Phillip Island Koala Reserve

And so to the Koala Reserve…I rather liked the sign.

It was more of a koala hunt really, as they’re quite hard to spot against the silver grey bark of the eucalyptus trees.

Koalas spend most of their time asleep, as they’re stoned on eucalyptus leaves.

They have snoozing off to a fine art.

They do it…really…

…really well.

Good thing they have strong paws to hold on with.

They get into some amazing positions.

There were also some wallabies…

…magpies…

…and other pretty birds.

Back to the koalas…

…so cute…

…so stupid (this isn’t a eucalyptus tree).

Oh…there was a little baby one…yeah, I squealed.

Oh look…

…they move every now and again…

…this si quite a balletic leg isn’t it.

MissT and friend.

Cows in Cowes

Our trip nearly over (sob, sob) David, Adam and I headed to Phillip Island for the day. We had lunch in a nice cafe is Cowes. I was rather taken with their decorated cows.

I liked these two best.
