Wilsons Promontory National Park and Wombats

2007 Apr 14 12:06 by Jakub

We finally found the sought after wombats at the Wilsons Promontory National Park this weekend. The park is at the southernmost point of continental Australia, and was a 2 hour drive from Melbourne. Wombats - they are a bit like small wild pigs and come out at night to eat grass. One actually sniffed our tent in the middle of the night. As far as I know, they are harmless little creatures. We also saw other wildlife at the park: kangaroos, birds, emus and huge ants that actually walked backwards to us in a defensive stance. We did a short hike to the top of Mt Oberon (sounds like transformer robots in disguise?) from which we enjoyed a semi cloudy view, and then spent the remaining day at a near empty beach. Woohoo.

    Hey there!
    No I have not found a job yet:-( I’ve been to two interviews so far, mostly sales/telemarketing work (not entirely crazy about it). If I hate the job or don’t find a job, I will travel on the last of my money. It’s still up in the air. As for Jakub, he is to start work on Monday and the contract is till mid-July. Cheers!
