Today we:

Today was a lot of driving, with a stop for some wine tasting, and we went to Phillip Island to see the "Penguin Parade", where hundreds of penguins come out of the water each evening to go to their nests. See me email for my report on this disappointment.

At night we all went to a club to dance (and drink) the night away.

We drove through the Snowy Mountains.
