Continued out walk down. Had a look for more koala but couldn't see any. Saw lots of ants nests hanging from trees and birds looking through the under growth.
Saw the same koala in the same place again though. He was still trying to sleep.
Got back to the car and 2 people ask for a lift as the bus was going to take 1:30. The bus service is quite **** there. Gave them a lift to the beach as that's where we were ...

... was fairly pleasant. It was a fab beach, peaceful, pretty and quiet. It might be winter but the sun was definitely out to play allowing us to top up our tans before the temperatures dip in to single figures in Melbourne. That night we bought bottles of wine and beer and sat by the beach front enjoying the sounds of the sea and eating chippies from a local restaurant. I'm really not a drinker, but ...
