Our good friend Jade suggested we should take a little road trip as she was allowed to take her car from her nanny job for the whole weekend. We decided to go to Phillip Island which is only an hour and 45 minutes away from where we live. Phillip Island is known for its rather cute Little Penguins. So we headed off on the road as poor Callum had to listening to Jade and Alex’s terrible singing for over an hour we arrived on Phillip Island.
First stop was the Koala Conservation Centre! We walked around and tried to spot the very inactive koalas. Once we had seen as much as we could we headed out again to Churchill Island Heritage Farm where we was hoping to milk a cow and learn how to throw a boomerang; but naturally all the little children got there first and we were much more interested in Sophie the horse and Katie the baby cow. We enjoyed the farm life for just over an hour and headed out for some fish and chips.
Later that night it was time for the Little Penguins, which we had to wait for… for 2 hours. Jade chose the worst seat next to a rather large group of parents and their rather naughty children. She spent the past 2 hours having someone shout “LUKE! TALIA! STOP IT NOW!” down her ears and children climbing over her and kicking her in the face. Not fun. But it was soon worth it as we watched the Little Penguins come onto the shore and waddle there way up the sand. After a slightly scary drive home in the dark concerned kangaroos were going to jump out as us, we made it home and had a lovely day at Phillip Island.
