So many stalagmites and stalagtites inside the Naracoorte Caves.
Inside Naracoorte Caves
We are near the Great Ocean Road on Australia’s southern coastline. This arch commemorates the men that built The Great Ocean Road with only axes, shovels and picks.
No explosives were used building this road. London Bridge is one of the famous rock formations.
The bridge collapsed in January 1990. Fortunately no one was injured. Our last stop was Sydney. This photo, from a boat in Sydney Harbor, shows the Sydney Harbor Bridge and the Sydney Opera House.
Leaving Sydney Harbor, we look back at the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge
These are possibly the most famous landmarks in Sydney. This boat carried us to see the migrating Humpback Whales.

We love whales! We believe we should show you a few of the Australian animals. We saw so many that we admired, but here are a few of our favorites. Emus were in several locations of Australia.

The females lay the eggs and the males care for the young. Of course, koala visits are a necessity when visiting Australia.

The kangaroos and the smaller wallabies are just so cute.

These pink and gray galah were one of our first birds of Australia, and mom’s favorite.
Pink and Gray Galah. Wild and beautiful
These white Sulphur Crested Cockatoos seem so exotic to us.
Sulphur Crested Cockatoos are plentiful. Considered exotic birds in US and farmers pest here.
They have very strong beaks. While eating out of mom’s hand, a cockatoo bit her finger. No blood, but some pain. Australia is an island, so spectacular sunsets are plentiful. Some of the best were over the Indian Ocean.
We truly enjoyed our Australian adventures. We hope you will visit there soon. It is fun and the people we met were all very friendly.
