“Hey mate, yeah keep going about 300 metres along the track and you’ll end up at the lighthouse, stunning views there mate” 🦘 

Wally the Wallaby helping the tourists find their way. Griffiths Island with its colony of shearwater seabirds, winding pathways and the spectacular lighthouse at the eastern tip, is a great place to explore in the heart of Port Fairy. 
Great capture by @a.simple.meandering 🙌

Located a little over 4hrs from Melbourne, Portland is well worth the drive. Whether you’re a history buff, foodie, nature lover or adventurer get ready for a great weekend. Wander the beautifully maintained historic streets, dine at the many harbourside pubs and restaurants, visit the nearby 2000 local resident Australian and Fur seals and discover deserted beaches.
