About Kennett River
Drive into Grey River Road at Kennett River and look out for furry lumps among the gumtrees. We saw some munching, one climbing and most of them sleeping. Lotsa tour buses stop at the car park for tourists to walk up, but the road stretches quite far in so drive up (slowly) if you can. After awhile, it became like a koala-spotting competition between me and KT. We spotted 11 different wild koalas in total!!

Next day I flew in Jetstar from Perth to Melbourne, and took 3 hours 20 min. Again I was in a different time zone. On the same day I opted for a guided bus tour which had city highlights of Royal Botanic garden, Yarra river, bathing boxes, St. Kilda and tramcar restaurant. Saw the Melbourne cricket ground, Port Melbourne by the sea and Acland Street in St. Kilda. Got a lot of options there as its a vibrant cosmopolitan mix of funky bars, eateries, electic shops and world famous patisseries. They charged for this tour $ 65.
