We are planning on staying with friends in Brighton and relaxing and enjoying the area. We plan on visiting GOR for 2-3 days as part of this time. My question having read a number of threads and tour reports - where is the best location to see the Australian wildlife in the most natural setting? Cape Ottoway, Tower Hill or Phillip Island? I have seen penguins in South Africa and love them - can get up close there. Is the penguin parade worth the visit and is it very touristy? I hate feeling part of a herd. I'd really love to see Koalas. We will be heading for Tasmania after Melbourne.
