    Eden Tower

    May 1, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    Changing plans we headed west and skipped the rest of the coastline to Melbourne after seeing a tower build by an ambitious man looking for whales to hunt. By a short off road walk we found a way down to beautiful cliffs covered in red.
    Turning inland we had a long mountain drive, yet again gambling too much on the fuel, but made it to a secluded village just in time. Night spend by a platypus river, and we saw one quickly surfacing in the dark.

    Whale Watching at Twofold Bay

    November 3, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    Um 6:05 Uhr klingelte unser Wecker und es hieß aufstehen. Gott sei Dank das unsere Brote bereits gestern Abend vorbereitet worden sind und das Wasser für Tee und Kaffee ☕️ stand auch schon auf dem Herd.

    Überpünktlich standen wir um 7:45 Uhr mit einigen anderen wenigen Frühaufstehern in der Eden Wharf und warteten darauf auf die CAT BALOU, ein kleiner Katamaran ⛴, steigen zu dürfen.

    Auf dem Boot ⛴ sicherten wir uns die besten Plätze direkt vorne beim Käpt’n 👮🏼 und schon begann unsere Whale Watching Tour. Bereits nur wenige Meter außerhalb des Hafens erspähten wir am Horizont schon die ersten Sprüh-Fontainen, also nix wie voll Gas voraus!

    Das Abenteuer konnte also beginnen, unsere Fotoapparate 📸 und Handys 📱knipsten um die Wette und die Begeisterung für die Wale 🐋 um uns herum war riesig. Eine kleine Ewigkeit verfolgten wir zwei Muttertiere mit ihren Jungen, oder vielleicht verfolgten sie auch uns. Wer weiß.

    Ein paar Robben und auch ein kleiner Pinguin waren ebenfalls unterwegs. Insgesamt ein sehr gelungener Ausflug!

    Bermagui to Lakes Entrance

    February 16 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    We packed up and had breakfast overlooking the marina and then went our separate ways - Lisa and Dave to Canberra and us to Lakes Entrance, the first stop on our 650km road trip to Melbourne. This was the part of the trip that had caused us concern as the route had been closed for several weeks because of the bushfires. The route takes us past Malacoota which was the place where the Navy evacuated people from the beach. Thankfully the road is fully opened but the devastation was clear to see. We drove for about 300km from Bermagui to Orbost. Virtually the whole way we were driving through burned forest. In places a 40m area had been cleared both sides of the highway quite incredible given the short time available. From time to time we came across the remains of houses, the brick fireplace and chimney the only sign of what had once been a home. We stopped at a rest area and I took a few pictures but these can only give a rough idea and goes nowhere near showing the extent of the damage, burned vegetation in some places as far as you can see. Yet strangely the recent rains had created several green areas. The verges with buttercups next to dead trees, life and death side by side. The closer we got to our destination the less distressed the landscape until we found ourselves once more surrounded by lush green countryside.Read more
