And it’s day 2! The tour guide was kind enough (and cruel enough) to ask the hotel clerks to give us a wake up call (literally) at 6 a.m. early in the morning. The sun has yet to show up but we are already all dressed up and ready to explore the great wonders of Australia!
Day 2 is the day when we will be exploring Phillip Island, an offshore landmark which was originally occupied a group of peace loving farmers. Due to rapid urbanization, many have moved over to the urban (or at least, the sub-urban area). The island is currently being commercialized and frequently hosts tourists from all over the world.
So what’s its selling point? You will see later.
The bus trip took us an hour and half, in which most of us slept through. The island has a very vibrant ecosystem, sheep, cows, horses, etc…It’s a real life farm! Not your usual FarmVille.
The lunch was great, fish & chips, materials all harvested locally.
After lunch we went for a walk around the island, the place is really cool. Best place to indulge in a slower pace of life.
We visited the local farm next. This is a very new experience for all of us, especially the part where we get to milk the cow.
As we wave goodbye to the farm, our next stop (which is not very far away) is the Koala Conservation Center!
The bus driver (who was Auzzie) took us off road on the way back to explore the hidden coastlines of southern Australia.
That’s all for day 2! Stay tuned for Day 3: The Great Ocean Road!
