  • Bicheno and Natureworld

    Last Tuesday Nami and I planned our day off with two friends and decided to spend the day on the East Coast. Four girls, one car, and the best of the nineties on CD!

    We first headed to the Blowhole first, found a pingouin under the rock (yes, a pingouin), spotted some big black crabs on the red-colored rocks and found lots of dry sea salt!

    Then we drove to Natureworld, stopped the car to dance the Macarena (of course we would!) and finally arrived! The aim was to see some Tasmanian devils (my precious) in the park but we were quite amazed by the white peacocks walking around proudly, discovered as well the Cape Garen Goose (which sound like a grunting pig..), the Wedge Tailed Eagle, parrots, royal pheasants, cockatoos, and the nocturnal marsupials like the spotted-tailed Quoll.

    I went a bit crazy when we saw the devils, as I took millions of pictures, but I have to highlight the Devils’ house they made, very interested with lots of information about the animal, the saying including the word ‘devil”, some quizz about the animals and the sound they make,etc. It was really a good idea, interesting and funny, we were like kids pressing all the buttons like crazy!

    We saw the devils and spotted-tailed wuoll’s feeding, found some peacock’s feathers (normal and white ones), fed some wallabies/pademelons which were holding our hands while eating, then ate our own picnic (Nami and I actually prepared everything the day before).

    We ended the day by laying a bit on the Boltons beach before going back home to watch some videos, have some tea and finished the day in Orford around a great Fishermen’s platter! Lots of fun, we really enjoyed the girls’ day trip even if it rained a bit!
