G’day Mate! After an intense week at the Asia 21 Summit, it was time for some fun and sun! First up on my list was a trip to the beautiful “12 Apostles”, a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of  Port Campbell National Park. It was a long day that began with a 3- hour drive on the Great Ocean Road, followed by a visit to the 12 Apostles, and a walk through the rainforest for some koala spotting.  We were treated to an up-close encounter with  a koala who waddled along, as all of us, tourists, crowded around him/her like the paparazzi!

After my time in Melbourne, I traveled to Sydney where I visited the famous Bondi Beach and took the scenic 2-3 hour walk to Coogee.  I was treated to some spectacular views of the ocean, and even went snorkeling at Shelly Beach. Of course, I had to visit the Sydney Opera House and even walked on the Sydney Bridge to get beautiful views of the Sydney Harbour.  Australia is a beautiful place with stunning landscapes and smiles.  I can’t wait to visit again!
