Surf Coast walk – Torquay

We always love coming Torquay and surrounding area to enjoy Surf Coast walk with kids. We usually start at the end of The Esplanade, where we follow the beachside path and head behind the Surf Club. We cross the tidal channel via a wooden boardwalk over Spring Creek. It is an easy walk to Rocky Point and the views are amazing which you will remember for very longtime. We walked on to the lookout. It features two viewing platforms; one looking East to Torquay and the other looking West towards Bells Beach. Stone seating is layered to represent the rocky reef breaks offshore.  … More Surf Coast walk – Torquay

And yet, in the heart of Melbourne city, there is this 140 years old building, which in 2004 founds its way into UNESCO World Heritage list. It has a brilliant exterior adorned by an iconic fountain.

Our Visit to Wilsons Promontory National Park

Wilsons Promontory National Park is an unspoilt, ruggedly beautiful park at the southern most tip of the Australian mainland. Wilsons Prom is a must see for anyone visiting Melbourne, if you have a little time up your sleeve to leave the metro area. It is approximately a 2.5-3 hour drive from Melbourne. The ‘Prom’ was all that we had imagined. Animals large and small like koalas, wallabies, echidnas, lizards, emus and birds of lesser stature were plentiful. There was plenty of bird life like Crimson Rosellas, Yellow Tailed Cockatoos and Black Faced Cormorants which we spotted as well.
