The Great Ocean Road, National Park, New South Wales, Australia
On the other end of the GOR is Cape Otway; this is where koalas are known to hang out. There's a lot of controversy over the recently announced "cull" of about 800 of the 8000 koalas there and I can't even imagine that there were that many (not overly dense and not easy to find - except for a few known spots). But, I can say that they are adorable "looking" critters. I hear they can be fierce and their claws definitely give off a don't mess with me!
My husband and I are incredibly fortunate in that we met through our business interests and are now able to work (and, travel) together. On our trips, we always try to pack in some adventures either before or after our business. When jetlag is likely, we always add on a few days before our business begins so that we can use the outdoors to adjust to the timezone. With business in Australia our easy choice is to rent a 4x4/AWD vehicle and then head for the bush. Luckily, we both adore exploring. These pictures were taken on a business trip to Melbourne in March 2014; summer was just about ending but the weather was still lovely.
