The Apostles

I have been to the Apostle Islands in Wisconsin, USA, and recently we visited the 12 Apostles in Victoria, Australia. Here is a short video clip taken from the viewing platform looking east at the start and then panning around to the west.

Getting there was half the fun, with a trip along the Great Ocean Road.

The Apostles are at point "D" on the map above.

We stopped at Apollo Bay for some lunch at the Bay Leaf Cafe, which was very nice. The trip back through Colac was fairly uneventful - we were looking for native Australian fauna - and did manage to see the odd Magpie, a couple of Kookaburra's, Rosella's and a flock of Galah's. We didn't see any Kangaroo's or other iconic animals like that except the day before, our trip down to Phillip Island where we saw Kangaroo's in a fenced off area of the race-track, and Koala's in the Phillip Island's Koala Conservation Centre.
