    Sunset, Sea and Fairy Penguins

    June 26, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    When we (Kate and Kate) were looking for things to do in Melbourne (preferably free things) we read about the St.Kilda Pier. The pictures looked really nice and when we heard about the penguins we were set on going.
    It took us about 30min by tram to get there and since we wanted to see the penguins who are best to spot at sunset we arrived only an hour before that.
    We walked to the end of the pier and found a comfortable spot to sit where we thought we had to wait for a bit. We were lucky and actually heard penguins straight away.
    They nest and sleep between the breakwater rocks and we couldn't see them at first but soon we spotted two just next to us. 💕
    They were so cute and even though we had already seen penguins in a zoo it is way more fun spotting them in the wild.
    Now I can add fairy penguins to my list of Australian animals I've encountered in this amazing last year. 💕
