Queen's Birthday at Paynesville, VIC
Our outing over the Queen's Birthday weekend was to Paynesville and more specifically Raymond Island - a mere three minute ferry ride from Paynesville. [We took the ferry back to Paynesville for dinner in the evenings!]
The autumn weather was really fantastic. I went for an early morning run on both mornings and managed to see koalas, kangaroos and wallabies. Pearl and I saw the koalas on a walk around the island later as well. Raymond Island is highly regarded as a wildlife refuge, with parts of it only sparsely populated.
