Cowrie beach sits alongside The Nobbies, a popular tourist attraction on Phillip Island. The beach is home to lots of penguins and other sea birds, and is a beautifully rugged piece of coastline.

….and finally for some Christmas fun. The great thing about long exposure photography is that you never quite know what you’ll catch. 🙂
Pyramid Rock is another location I’ve returned to numerous times. To me it almost looks unreal, like something from a fairy tale. To visit Pyramid Rock, drive to the car park at the south end of the aptly named Pyramid Rock Rd. There’s a very civilized boardwalk that takes you to an observation deck for a nice view of the rock and some of the surrounding coastline.
Those who don’t mind a little bit of mountaineering might try for an even closer view by going off the beaten track past the observation deck. (Although I’m not sure what the park guidelines might say about that.) 😉
