Dec 1, 2015 - Phillip Island

We had a great weekend out at Phillip Island- Lisa's friend let us stay in their bach right on the seafront. The island is pretty with towns such as Cowes and Ventnor!! The highlight was our visit to the Penguin Parade at dusk where we waited watching the beach (along with a couple of thousand other visitors) as groups of Little Penguins came carefully ashore and then waddled up towards us and their burrows. Over 1000 were arriving over an hour and after watching them on the beach we went to the boardwalks where you could get up close and...

Our Year Out

Dec 16, 2014 - Penguins!

We camped in Inverloch, a town on the coast to the east of Melbourne and away from the Great Ocean Road. Our campground on the beach came complete with ibis, cockatoos, and other colorful birds. The big highlight in this area is Phillips Island, where thousands of tiny blue fairy penguins come in nightly (after swimming and eating fish all day) to feed their young. Fran and I saw a couple of these fairy penguins back in 1992 when we visited Sylvie Temperley outside of Perth. Now apparently they are called "little" penguins in deference to...

Apr 26, 2011 - Inverloch

Inverloch– 11 April to 16 April (5 nights) The short 117km drive from Melbourne to Inverloch was dual carriageway almost all the way and mainly followed the coast, with glimpses of French Island and Phillip Island along the way. The scenery was great with rolling hills and green valleys and millions of cattle - definitely very good cattle country. Inverloch is a seaside village in Victoria, with a population of about 4,300 and is located 143 kms southeast of Melbourne, at the mouth of Anderson Inlet. The first European to settle in the...

Living the Dream

Mar 8, 2009 - Foster Markets and then Bear Gully

We woke to sunshine and after breakfast Ashley and I went out of the cp to the oval next door where the Foster markets were held.... We bought fruit, vegetables, pistachio and rosewater turkish delight, and some t-shirts for the kids. We then went in search of the guys with the kids and after a fifteen minute search we found them all at the huge playground in the markets. We decided on coffee and whilst in line Rhiannon hurt herself, leg, on the flying fox, so Sean went back to the car to get bandages. She was soon feeling much better!!!...

Mar 7, 2009 - Rain, Rain go away and watching Nana's DVDs

We woke to rain and more rain so we agreed to the kids watching some DVDs as there was nothing else to do. A hike in the rain was not something we thought would be fun. I had an appointment with a beautician who told me her whole family history and where we should dine tonight. I returned to find the kids still watching dvds. We finally got them away from the square box and drove to Toorah pub. The bistro was fantastic it had a playroom that entertained all ages of children including the 38 year old boys!!!! We ordered and Ashley and I...

Mar 6, 2009 - Finding a caravan park on a Victorian long weekend

We woke early, with me still in a horrid mood and just wanting some sort of order. We drove to San Remo, and bought some bakery goods and groceries for tonight. The kids played on the playground whilst I checked out the gift shop. I chatted to the ladies there and they cheered me up ....as tears were free flowing!! Walking back to the car from the playground we saw a seagull being hit by a car. This caused Liam to be very upset for most of the day. We drove on to Cowes and were impressed with the town .....very lovely...would be a great...
