While we were on our tour of Kangaroo Island off the coast of South Australia, we were taken to a Wildlife Park. There were many different kinds of Australian animals, too many to show here.
I had never seen white (albino) kangaroos before.
The overseas tourists just love the kangaroos.
The little penguins were cute.
The echidna is well camouflaged.
The next morning it was beautiful having breakfast overlooking the bay at Kingscote.
After breakfast we were taken to a honey factory, where they showed us how a special machine takes the honey out of the honeycombs without destroying the honeycombs. This speeds up production because the bees don't have to construct the honeycombs again they just fill the old ones with honey.
They have a very pure honey on Kangaroo Island because there is only one type of bee on the island. It originally came from Italy back in the 1800's. The honey is more pure than the Italian one now because the bees in Italy have cross bred with other types of bees.
Then we drove to the other end of the island to see the Remarkable Rocks. From a distance they don't look anything special although some say they look like a camel lying down.
But as you get closer you can see how big they are and their unusual shapes.
They certainly were remarkable.
Next stop was Admiral's Arch, a naturally formed archway under the little peninsula where you could see the ocean on the other side.
It was also home to many New Zealand Fur Seals
I recommend Kangaroo Island as a great place to visit for wildlife, National Parks and walks. It hasn't been spoilt with development.
We stopped at a very interesting Information Centre in Flinders Chase National Park before boarding the coach for the last time to take us back to the ferry. It was a long drive then a short ferry ride followed by another long bus ride back to our hotel in Adelaide. We fell into bed exhausted at midnight.
