Photography was not allowed. So all I had was this photo of a taxidermied penguin.
See the egg?
Yes. They were safely back in their burrows.
The next morning, we were off the the Koala Conservation Center and the Churchill Heritage Farm.
The first sight to greet us was this really old, old tree. It is supposed to be about 200 years old. Ain't it magnificent?
Love the woodland of tall eucalypt trees. Though we were in the woodland, surrounded by the eucalypt trees, I didn't smell the distinct eucalyptus oil.
Love how the bark peels off the trunk.
Spotted a mummy? koala with its baby. Koalas eat such an indigestible food source that they spend most of their time dozing while their body detoxifies the eucalytus leaves they ingest.
I think these are the inflorescence of the eucalypt trees.
Love, love, love this picture of the 2 of them.
After the Koala Conservation Center, we drove off to Churchill Island Heritage Farm. It is not exactly a working farm, more like an exhibit farm. We didn't stay there for long as we were trying to make the 530pm Serranto Ferry. The boys had fun there nonetheless.
It was just nice to be away from the city for a while. Really lovely to be just seeing trees, grass, sheep and cows.
