Down Under

Has my daughter had made plans to visit Australia and was not taking me I thought the jammie sod. I was really surprised that she went looking for wildlife with her friend from Scotland. They travelled a fair bit in Australia, they went to Queensland, around Brisbane and Victoria and they did the Great Ocean Road. They also did a detour and went to Melbourne and they saw some great stuff. It's nice to think all the times I dragged my kids bird watching and some of it rubbed off, makes me feel chuffed. First bird is White Faced Heron.
 Wedge Tailed Eagle, she said wild but who knows
This is one Christina.wanted to see in the wild a Koala Bear .
 Sooty Ostercatcher

Bush Stone Curlew

Lewin's Honeyeater

Pacific Black Duck
Crimson Rosella

Pied Cormorant
Australia Pelican
Australia Gannet
She also went whale watching and she stayed on the top deck while everyone was being sick below and she was spotting the Whales before they were being called. She had 15 Humpback Whales in total and I am well jealous
