Looks wonderful! Photos 2 and 3 look very much like Phillip Island - which is close by anyway.

Nice collection of photos! What is the animal in your first shot?

Looks like a beautiful area. I like the old wooden stairs leading down to the beach.

Linda: the animal is an Echidna, also known as a Spiny Anteater and is an egg-laying mammal. I was thrilled to snap this one just after it crossed the road in front of me, as I've only previously seen this species in a zoo or wildlife sanctuary!

I love the top photo of the little animal, an Echidna.

Felicia said...

Seems to be a nice place with ample photo opportunities!

I too was wondering the name of that beautiful animal. I'd love to come across one of those in the UK! I'll have to make do with a hedgehog I guess.

Ah Victoria! What a fine place.

(nothing like one eyed parochialism is there!)

I recognise some of those places from our trips there. It is a lovely area and your photos have captured the feel of the place.
