Wilson Promontory National ParkApril 23, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C
We got up at 6 again to search the nearby walk for wildlife. Yet again we only found some wallabies and kangaroos but still not the highly anticipated wombats. Just their burrows and droppings. But we had planned to go to one of the best spots for wombat spotting so it wasn't really bad.
After breakfast we headed to the nearby town of Lakes Entrance which is part of the Gippsland, am area known for its wildlife. There we investigated about walks in the park and also did a short walk along the beach on a boardwalk. In the early afternoon we arrived at Foster, the closest town to the park. We knew what we needed to know about spotting wombats and finally we were successful!
After 15 minutes into the park was one roaming along the road. One and a half hour later we had seen three wombats and took over a hundred pictures. And in the end it was worth all the effort to see such unique animals in the wild :) Additionally we saw some emus on a nearby plain as well.Read more
