This is why we came here - PENGUINS! This one is moulting. They are called Little Penguins - only the Ozzies would give them such a prosaic name!

This is where the penguins come ashore, at dusk every evening, on Phillip Island

Now we're at healsville Animal Sanctuary. This is Echidna.

Wombat, all curled up and asleep

Wallaby

Black swan - Odile, from Swan Lake

Kangeroo

Roos lying down have an almost human expression

Emu - funny looking feather-duster of a bird!
