We then saw some wildlife on the Koala Walk and more seals at Vivone Bay. James had booked us in at a Wilderness Retreat for the night, which was basic but luckily did not involve camping. After all the wine I was planning on a soft drink night but James had other ideas.
We settled in at the Retreat Restaurant and proceeded to have a four course dinner, it was all sourced from Island produce and was amazing. James even tried Yabbies, usually he hates shell fish!
After tasting his way through the port list, James decided it was a good idea to go for a nature walk in the pitch black with his new hat and new torch… the walk highlight was seeing a Wallaby weeing.

On our last full day we drove to Flinders Chase National Park and saw the Remarkable Rocks, Admirable Arch and lots more Seals! It was a very windy day – hence the hoods!

For our final day of our trip we decided to go out with a splash and went out swimming with 35 wild dolphins! The water was about 17 degrees which felt freezing at first but as soon as I put my snorkel under and saw a big group of smiling dolphins coming my way I stopped feeling the cold! They are so curious, it was an amazing experience.
And that was the end of our trip… we had the best time, James planned it all so well and I don’t think we could have hoped to have seen or done more in 17 days. Now we just need to plan trips to WA and NT and we’ll have seen all the states of Australia… how lucky are we!
