Kenneth River - there are more koalas here than anywhere else we've been, it's ridiculous that we travelled 7000km before and only saw three - after only 200km from Melbourne we even saw our first one awake and eating.
Loch Ard Gorge has some fascinating inlets and a romatic history of only a cabin boy and a lady surviving a shipwreck
Supposedly between June and September the Ocean Road ocean fills with whales for the winter time. However it seems we turned up too early and didn't see any - normally the first ones to arrive hit the news so everybody local knows when to go down to the coast (this avoids standing around uselessly in the cold). We did learn that for each movement that a whale makes a different name is given, so when it shows its flipper, tail or belly a particular name applies.
