And then we found a spot where koala’s were in the trees!! We were told they were likely in this certain area, so we began looking for lumps in the tree tops. Sure enough, we first spotted one that was sleeping, then another and then one that was awake. In the end we spotted 6 koala in the wild at this spot along the road. It was approximately noon, and by this time koalas are usually napping. That is what we found them doing. They were in the ‘Y’ of a tree branch curled in a ball, sleeping away! It was exciting!
We stopped at every interesting point along the Great Ocean road, hiking to almost every lookout point. The 12 Apostle formations, the Arch formation, the London Bridge formation, and finally the Grotto formation - these were a few of the interesting formations we saw today just off the rugged southern coast of Australia.

We were in some remote locations where there were very few people, but at the 12 Apostles formations, half of Asia was there!! – busloads!!For tonight we are in the town of Warrnambool. It was a great day viewing nature.
