It was our final day in the Warnnambool region. We had decided to go to Port Fairy, visiting Tower Hill on the way and exploring coastal reserves on the way bay.
Dad had missed the turn off to Tower Hill, and we had decided to continue to Port Fairy. I suggested we check out Killarney Beach. It had been recommended to me by birdwatching friends and was mentioned in Wildlife of the Otways and Shipwreck Coast. A previous visit had been underwhelming, but a quick look at Google Maps showed that it may have rockpools.
I knew I was taking a chance by suggesting it, but figured it was worth a shot. It ended up being one of my families favourite locations for the trip.
