The day began with a stroll through the trees to the Otway Fly Tree Top Walk. The path begins at ground level and continued to the canopy of the rainforest and climbs up to 47 meters above the ground. The view was slightly misty at the beginning but was clear at the end.
After the walk in the woods, we went back on the Great Ocean Road, on the part closest to Melbourne where the cliffs are replaced by beaches. This part of the road is famous for surfing and the birthplace of Quicksilver and Ripcurl at Torquay (The prices are not cheaper in this city). The vegetation there really reminded me of Britain, except that itâ€™s sunnier and warmer in Australia. It was a huge change from the desert near Alice Springs.
Along the road we stopped at a campground where many Koalas live in freedom, dazed on trees. We have seen in a dozen, mostly sleeping. The other particular element of this site is that it has and lorikeets and parakeets to pecking food in your the hands en masse. I got up to 4 birds at the same time on my hand.
