At the next stop, the humans fed colorful tropical birds.   Humans were given a handful of bird seed and this King Parrot knew what to do.

Along The Great Ocean Road, we saw many of these Sulphur Crested Cockatoos.   We love them, but not everyone is a fan of these beautiful birds.

Sulphur Crested Cockatoos are plentiful. Considered exotic birds in US and farmers pest here.

They have very strong beaks and cause much damage in a farmer’s field.     Along the Great Ocean Road, we stopped at Memorial Arch.

The Great Ocean Road was begun in 1918 with 3,000 workers, many returning veterans from World War I, and the project was completed in 1932.  The road was built with axes and picks; no explosives were used.   This statue commemorates the men that built The Great Ocean Road.

Our last stop of the day was the Anglesea Golf Course where we were greeted y this kangaroo.

Is he saying welcome to our golf course?

Several kangaroos were grazing on the edge of the fairways, but this young kangaroo wasn’t interested in grazing.

Mom is still the best!
