We went to A Maze'n'Things, which was a fun place with all sorts of optical illusions and puzzles, along with a mirror maze and a big outdoor maze which we eventually gave up on trying to complete.
Then we went across the road to the Koala Conservation Centre. This cost $9.50 to get in and we were very confused about what we were actually paying for since it seemed to just be a walk in a park. It was indeed just a walk in a park, it was a nature reserve with lots of trees, but there was also a boardwalk which took you up higher into the trees for a better look at the Koalas. We were worried that we wouldn't see any koalas (how can they guarantee that a wild koala will sit in the trees near the boardwalk?) and that we'd been jipped almost $20 to look at trees, but then we got to the other end of the boardwalk and there were koalas everywhere!! We were very happy and took lots of pictures of the gorgeous koala's - some even had babies with them! Apparently there was also supposed to be Echidnas, Wallabies and lots of interesting birds there too, but we didn't see any (not one bird!).
We went up to San Remo for lunch, there were lots of Pelicans in the water there, so that was pretty cool. The public toilets were the most disgusting I have ever seen though so if you go there have lunch at a place with a bathroom so you can use that one!
We spent the rest of the day wandering around the shops and then back to our room for more relaxation.
That night, we went to the Penguin Parade. This was really special, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who goes to Phillip Island. I will attach a review to this blog with full details.
That night we were pretty tired from our excursions, but managed to fit in a viewing of some show on tv about skinny celebrity mum's and their crazy diets.
