Australia and the Mornington Peninsula were amazing. Must see/do includes Arthur’s Seat, Cape Schanck, Fort Nepean, Mother’s Beach … visit Naughty Norman’s in Mornington for delicious Mexican food, the Portsea Hotel in Portsea serve delicious and very large portions of food! Highly recommend a visit to Phillip Island to see the Koalas and the Penguin Parade. We also flew to Sydney - very easy to get around - public transport is fantastic, brilliant value for money and very easy to use. While in Sydney a visit to the Blue Mountains is a must and also a visit to Manley which is easy to get to on a ferry from Sydney Harbour!

Toured northern Victoria. All very fascinating during the spring. Take careful note of weather forecasts, when it says it’s going to rain, it really is going to rain and flash flooding is a serious issue.
