Close Encounters


hand-feeding a wallaby, a kangaroo with its joey saying hello from the pouch, and a wombat


...all up close and personal at the Wildlife Park at Cowes, Philip Island, where a bag of nibbles are given per person after paying a $15 entrance fee, and you're off feeding every possible animal within reach (would probably think twice before feeding the tasmanian devil). There is a free range area where (harmless) animals roam about freely (mind your feet if you mind poo on your shoes). Encounters of the furry kind could not be closer than this!



Probably best to have a sugar high at the Chocolate Factory in Newhaven, Phillip Island before coming to cuddle the creatures. Try the dark chili chocolate.




What else to do on this island :
- go to penguin parade and watch an entire colony 'parade' by sundown
- explore Churchill Island, one of the early European settlements
- wine tasting
- explore walking trails (from 15 minute walks to a couple of hours!)
- surfing and swimming in the wonderful beaches
- see the lazy creatures at the Koala Conservation Center

Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
