AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Moonraker is a boat that takes small groups of people out into Port Phillip Bay in search of seals and dolphins.
You also get the opportunity to swim with them and to explore marine reefs.
In the above photo, the boat is docked at Sorrento in early morning light.
