Australia Travels, December 2015 to January 2016

We flew by Qantas to Melbourne and traveled in Victoria and South Australia

Views of Melbourne from the Melbourne Star, a rotating wheel much like the London Eye.
Footbridge over the Yarra River. This takes you from the Southgate promenade to the Flinders St. Rail Station and Flinders St.
Walk through an acrylic tunnel in the Sea Life Aquarium.
The Flinders St. Rail Station built in 1854. Collins Street for shopping.
We drive notheast to the mountains and climb Mt. Bogong, the highest peak in Victoria state. The summit cairn on Mt. Bogong. Elevation 1986 m (6516 ft.).
One of several beautiful beaches along The Great Ocean Road west of Melbourne.
Mt. Feathertop was the second peak in the alpine area we climbed. A long hike of 21 km (13 miles) round-trip.
More amazing scenes in the area of The Twelve Apostles.
View of The Twelve Apostles on The Great Ocean Road.
The famous Remarkable Rocks at the southwestern end of Kangaroo Island. Shown at sunset. These are not soft sandstone, but hard granite.

Another view of the Remarkable Rocks. It is best to visit early in the morning or late near sunset
A kookaburra at a wildlife park on Kangaroo Island.
A koala on the trail near the Cape du Couedic lighthouse. Seemed like an odd place for a koala since there were no trees, only shrubs in the area.
The rugged northwest coast of Kangaroo Island.
