Melbourne: Part 3

On Sunday I visited the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne where I saw plants, people, and loads of birds. A lovely, relaxing afternoon.

Later I took the tram to St. Kilda (a neighborhood south of Melbourne) where every evening hundreds of Little (or Fairy) Penguins return to their home on the St. Kilda breakwater after feeding on anchovies all day. As the little critters don’t really start showing up until after the sun has set, the photos are a bit grainy. Still, very cool to see some penguins on my last night in Melbourne.

Next: the aptly named Great Ocean Road.
