Nov 17, 2013 - Penguins, penguins, penguins.....

We had a beautiful drive along the Tasman Sea leaving Apollo Bay. We stopped a few times for pictures at lookouts and enjoyed the cute little summer resort towns along the way. At noon the three of us (Dave, Marilyn and the rental car) took the Queenscliff to Sorrento ferry to avoid the long drive up and over Port Phillip Bay and through metropolitan Melbourne. From there we took about two hours to drive north, then east, then south and finally west to Phillip Island. We were on Phillip Island to experience the "most popular wildlife...

Dec 25, 2012 - Phillip Island, Cowes

Geen onbijt in het hotel want alles is dicht wegens Kerstmis. Dan maar een geimproviseerd kerst ontbijt aan het meer. De eerste dag zijn ze naar het Wilsons Promontory Nationaal Park gereden (ongeveer 4 uur rijden). Dit is het mooiste dat ik tot hiertoe gezien heb. We zijn hier op 3 plaatsen gestopt : telkens was het nog een uurtje stappen naar de zee. En dan kom je aan een strand van de reclame : hel blauwe zee, wit strand en een heel woest landschap. Onderweg kruist een kangoeroe ons op de weg ... ze zijn er dus toch. En ja, we hebben er...

Sep 11, 2009 - Cowes and the Little Penguins

Phillip Island, Cowes and the Little Penguins. Thursday 10th September After a long drive we elect to stay at a campsite that advertises a Pool, spa and TV room with a wood burning stove! They tell us that they only have ‘en-suite’ sites available as the toilet block is being refurbished – but at $30 that is good by us! For those of you who don’t know what an ‘en-suite’ site is – well – imagine a little shed next to your caravan, with a toilet, basin and shower inside – and your own key!! – That’s it! This was a nice modern one, which we...

Jan 16, 2009 - My holidays - Phillip Island.

Après une semaine dans le Nord, je suis partie rejoindre des amis à Phillip Island, 2 heures de route de Melbourne. Cet endroit m'a beaucoup fait penser à la Bretagne. Les plages sont très différentes de Noosa, très rocheuses, algues et falaises, et un sable beaucoup plus épais. Le climat est différent aussi. Ne faites pas comme moi, pensez aux pulls et aux vêtements chauds... Je suis tombée sur un temps venteux et pluvieux et j'ai du acheter de quoi me réchauffer! Cet endroit n'a rien d'extraordinaire mais si vous passez par la ca reste à...

Dec 22, 2007 - Melbourne to Phillip Island

Sorry to leave Melbourne. Great hotel, great place. Get taxi out to motor home hire place and driver doesn't know where he is going until Dad shows him on the map! Head off to Frankston and get lost along the way. Have lunch at Dad's cousin Mary's house and meet most of the Aussie Cameron clan. Arrive at Anchor Belle holiday park around 5pm and get hooked up to electricity etc. Kids in pool and cooking with gas as we type. Weather down here was spectacular for all the wrong reasons. Imagine Fort William on a bad day. They tell us they...

Nov 2, 2007 - Wahrscheinlich letzter Eintrag

Da bin ich mal wieder. Wo sind wir stecken geblieben? Ah ja, bei meinem Kaffee intravenoes, der zu guten Tipps und lustigen Bemerkungen anregte. Nur soviel: bis auf ein Bier, tranken wir den ganzen Abend Cola und es war trotzdem lustig und Eure Kommentare auch :-) Soviel zu Wahrnehmungen. Nun gut, am Montag fuhr ich mit dem Bus nach Philipp Island und beinahe haette ich ihn verpasst, da ich zulange Kaffee getrunken und gequasselt habe. Vollgepackt mit meinem grossen Rucksack, an dem die Wanderschuhe baumelten, dem kleinen Rucksack und...
