What We Really Do On Our Days Off...
Anyone that knows Greg knows how much he loves Formula One racing. Even with three action-packed days in Australia there's still some downtime to visit the awesome animals down under!
What can be more relaxing than feeding baby penguins?!
Only a tad bigger than a bowling pin, little penguins (sometimes called fairy penguins) are the smallest penguin species in the world. These petite paddlers make their homes along the coast of southern Australia, with colonies located on Montague Island and Sydney’s Manly Beach in NSW, the St Kilda breakwater in Melbourne, Victoria’s Phillip Island and the aptly-named Penguin Island in WA (among others).
Each morning, little penguins will leave their burrow to spend the day fishing at sea. Over the day, they’ll travel up to 20km in search of fish, cephalopods and crustaceans. After dusk, they return home in “rafts” and scurry across the beach in a “penguin parade”.
Greg's trip was filled with penguins, wallabies, koalas, and all sorts of music - but Signa will always be his home and favourite place to be!
