I, my parents and a friend of my mother had spent four days in and around Melbourne. We joined a local tour, and the service of the tour was so bad, really bad! I swear I won't join that company again in the future. The guide and the driver was the same person, his manner was rude, unfriendly and without responsability. I can't believe that he still can make a living with that attitude to customers!! The trip was awesome, and in this four days we had visited the Great Ocean Road, Phillip Island, Gold Mine and the Melbourne Tower.
Phillip Island Nature Park - Penguin Parade
One of the most popular attraction in Australia is watching little penguins returning ashore at sunset after a day´s fishing. At the Phillip Island, people sat on the beach, very silent, without making any noise, wait for those little cute creatures to walk back home. I sat on the left hand side of the main corridor in front of the ocean. I stared at the sky at the moment while others were looking at the ocean, waiting for the first penguin to returning ashore. As the sun faded in the sky, little penguins began to waddle up the beach to their homes. A second later, someone broke the silent and said: "Oh, look! There is one over there!" There was one penguin walking on the beach. They looked really cute and adorable. Everyone there was excited! It was a great moment and I will never forget it! (photographing is not allowed at the beach, so no photos can be taken)
The Twelve Apostles are a collection of natural limestone stacks standing just off shore in the Port Campbell National Park, on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. Thousands of years of sea erosion have battered the soft limestone cliffs, creating grottoes and gorges, arches and sea-sculptures rising from the sea-surf. The clifftop road gives occasional glimpses of the drama below, with the most famous being rock stacks of The Twelve Apostles.
On 12th of March, early in the morning, we left Melbourne to Sydney. It took almost 10 hours to get there. It was unbearable. If next time I have to do the same thing like that (10 hours of ride), I think I'd rather catch a plane. Save time and free myself from petrified!
