Melbourne Penguin Parade and Wine Tours

10th Dec 2010, Friday (6 years ago)

The moment that I remember the most in Australia are the penguins at Philips island, most of the time you can see these penguins in a zoo but this is natural habitat. There are seats build all around the beach where the penguins come home, the penguins normally go out fishing as a group at dawn and return to their burrows just right after sunset. Hundred of seagulls flying on top of us with the strong wind, I can’t feel my whole body yhere and freeze like hell. Unfortunately I got no pictures for this event because there was a strict no camera, penguins are very sensitive to the lights just like me.

No photography beyond this point, after step out the building my hand is so itchy that I want to take picture with the beach view, but is better to keep my camera inside the bags because there are many park rangers there.

At the end of grape tree rows they plant rose bushes, because roses are sensitive to the same diseases as grapevines and if someone notices the rose plant is sick, the grapevine is promptly checked.
