Travel: Eighth Day in Melbourne

Did another tour with AAT Kings, for Philip Island Penguin Parade…

Along the way, we dropped off at Maru Koala, to see some of the native and/or rescued animals, eg. Kookaburra, Koala, Kangaroos, Wallabies, Tasmanian Devil and others.

Followed by scenic view of Philip Island and Penguin Parade.

Though a long wait in the cold weather, for the little ones to gather enough courage to waddle home in front of us… seeing them gathered in a group for strength and wondering why that many tourists were standing around watching them, was quite the fun experience ๐Ÿ™‚

Sadly, no photography allowed from the parade, due to previous groups of guests / tourists flashing the little ones with camera flash and scaring them.

Dinner was at Pinos, a little Italian place in Cowes. Lovely food, esp. the tiramisu and friendly service ๐Ÿ™‚

Some snapshots as followed:
