    Penguin

    October 25, 2017 in Australia

    This is a coastal town near Ulverstone. It has a feel of a pretty English seaside town which lends itself to sitting and licking an ice cream as you look out over the water. But the biggest joy of all is penguins ! The world's smallest penguin comes ashore here during its breeding season.
    Our very own little Mawson was so excited to get acquainted with one of his very own standing tall and proud in the main street.
    From here we went inland to the Leven Valley , Preston Falls and Leven Canyon. A lush green region with rolling hills and rich soil.

    Leven Canyon

    October 25, 2017 in Australia

    After leaving the coastline we drove inland to view mountains, wildlife,waterfalls,fertile farmland-breathtaking scenery.
    The Leven Canyon is only a 45min drive from the coast and the reserve covers almost 2,500ha.
    We took the walk to Cruickshank's lookout with views 275m above the Leven River. The Canyon is 12km long with six sets of rapids and two waterfalls.
    Angela took on the challenge of 697stairs down into the canyon and what goes down must come back up-suffered painful legs for days following.
    Our lunch was in a relaxed bushland setting, in full sunshine.
    We visited the delightful Preston Falls which plunge 25meters into the shady depths of a gorge.
    On our way south we admired the view into the lush green valley and stopped at the boutique Leven Valley Vineyard where we tasted and purchased a great bottle of chardonnay. We had both forgotten just how good chardonnay can be !!!
