    We were National Park in the Australian winter in Wilsons Promontory. Of course, it was also less wrong than usual because something fresher, but dry - and it was good. Apart from kangaroos and EMUs, we were also lucky to see Wombats. There are a lot of smaller and larger trails that offer incredibly beautiful images thanks to the many beaches in the Park.
