JB, our very able guide, took us on a wonderful journey to the Maru animal sanctuary. We fed the Roos, and emus, saw the tassi devils among other Aussie critters.
We then drove to Phillip Island finding the fairy penguin burrows in the hillsides. The fairy chicks were coming out of their homes looking for their dinner and parents. As darkness arrived, the parents began their daily walk from the sea to feed the chicks. Hundreds of them marched by the platform as we watched in awe. JB told us exactly where to stand to get the best view of the penguins. So tiny. We were within two feet of them!
For all to remember, there is NO LIVE PHOTOGRAPHY THERE!!!
A flash from a camera will blind the penguins making them unable to search for food at sea, hide from predators above ground or at sea.
JB did a great job getting us back to our hotels on such a late nite.
You will be treated to a wonderful day visiting Phillip Island with JB as your terrific guide.
Thx JB! New Jersey!!
