12 Apostles

It is a long way from where we are in Queensland to the 12 Apostles in Victoria. Our son who lives in Melbourne said come down and I will take you to the 12 Apostles. Even though it is Winter, and we knew it would be very cold and sometimes wet, we went anyway.
There were lots of Crimson Rosella and other birds on the side of the road. Sorry, no photos. Not many places to pull over when you see them.
Click on photos to enlarge.

Why do people have to ignore signs to keep out
Hope their photos were worth it.

Brown Goshawk.

 Winter is well on the way more frost coming this week.

This Brown Goshawk has been hanging around for a while now, and at last landed in the mango tree long enough for a quick photo before taking off again.
