The next day was getting up early, and rush to the 12 Apostles: a bunch of limestone stacks standing in the ocean. There are no 12, and there haven't been 12, so the name is a little silly. In fact there's less and less as erosion makes them slowly disappear until they collapse.
From there on it was onwards to London Bridge, and the Bay of Isles. London Bridge is a formation of limestone rock with 2 arches that is reminiscent of the London Bridge in London. However, the arch connecting to the land collapsed in 1990, leaving a couple of folks stranded on the newly formed island, so it takes a little bit of imagination now, but it's still pretty clear. And beautiful none the less.
Bay of Isles is... well... a bay filled with little isles. Or to put it more precise, it is a spot in the coastline where the limestone has been heavily eroded and the water has been able to come land inwards quite a bit, leaving plenty of stacks standing around looking pretty.
Final stop along the coast was Tower Hill. An extinct volcano, that is now filled with a lake and forresty area housing plenty of native Australian wildlife. It was the middle of the day though, so most animals were hiding from the sun and enjoying their siestas. However a bunch of emus did make their appearance, smelling the chance of stealing somebody's lunch!
From there on it was time to head land inwards. To the Grampians. A small mountainous area curiously protruding out of the wide flat surroundings. I spotted the first kangaroos here. Which is surprising, because there are 4 times more kangaroos in Australia than there are people, so would kind of have expected them earlier!
The Grampians has some beautiful rock formations, so took some time to wander and take it all in.
From there it was onwards to the Assess Ears Wilderness Lodge. A home in the outback next to a long stretch of grass that serves as an airfield, although I wouldn't have a clue when. I guess only in emergencies, because it's really nothing more than a stretch of grass with some white pylons in the middle of nowhere. There were plenty of birds though, and spotted a few kangaroos, although they were too fast to take a picture of in the diminishing sunset light. I did find a kangaroo skull, and soon went to set up the tent and went to sleep for an early pre-sunrise rise the next morning.
