Perth

sunny 33 °C

Fremantle Maritime museum was a great museum. Among many other things they had this diving suit from the James Bond movie "For Your Eyes Only".

After the museum we took a river cruise from Fremantle to Perth on Swan River.
We actually saw some dolphins jumping next to the ferry.

There was a misty fog hanging over Perth because of a bushfire some 400 km down south. You can see that on the photos (great excuse for bad photos).

In Perth we did a new attempt to find wild kangaroos. On Heirisson Island there should be an enclosed area (500x200 meter) with a colony of grey kangaroos. This time it should be impossible for the jumping creatures to escape us. But after searching the island for almost two hours being through every bush and tree we didn't see anything :-(

But believe it or not in the middle of the town centre we actually encountered some Kangaroos drinking water from a fountain.

We ended the Perth visit with some disgusting cocktails (Maria liked them though).
