Visiting he Nobbies – Rock formation on Phillip Island

When I went to Phillip Island in early December last year we took a trip to the Nobbies. It is a rock formation that is out past the grand prix circuit and near where you can see the penguins coming in or going out. I’m not really sure as it is something I’ve never done. I’ve never been interested.

I have to admit the trip was kind of a surprise. In the morning we went to Churchhill Island so I didn’t take the photography gear that I wanted to use there. If I had known we were going to go I would have taken some other gear with me. Though if I’m honest I would’ve preferred to have gone there either early in the morning or later in the day.

I wasn’t happy.

I decided to video a lot of what I was seeing, so today there is a video for you.

I put a heap of photos in the video as well. I am going to put some of them in a gallery for you here, but if you want to see them all you will need to watch the video. It isn’t very long.

I hope you enjoy seeing my trip to the Nobbies, such a strange name for it, but somehow appropriate.

  2. Wow Wow Leanne. Those photos spotted there at the Philips Island are stunning and beautiful, a real vacation indeedπŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”πŸ—ΊπŸ–. Also, I love the little penguins visible there under those rocks so lovely😊

  3. My wife and I visited the Nobbies a few years ago. Lovely place. I believe it was the breeding season when we visited. For some reason the gulls took exception to my wife, or more specifically, her hat. She was mobbed, with gulls dive bombing her head. She survived the experience. Loved you images. Did you take in the evening penguin show ?

    1. Oh no your poor wife. the birds didn’t seem that bothered with us. Very noisy though. Thank you Bob and no didn’t stay for the penguin show. I have never done it and never really been interested.

  4. This was really wonderful, Leanne. The video was great! It was like being there. And your photos were so beautiful. I really enjoyed this post.

  5. Wow, Leanne, what a spectacular spot. Love your images and video- they all come together to give a real sense of the place.
