It was worthwhile to have the upgraded tickets to Shelley Beach (Cat Cove) with a private ranger and a handful of other tourists to view the penguins. We received an overview in the ranger office, protective gear, night vision goggles, audio support, a ranger ride to the beach area, and a coupon for a drink before Peter drove us back to Melbourne in two hours. It was superb to skip the chocolate factory and visit Cranbourne Botanical Garden and Caldermeade Dairy Farm. The koala park is a bonus. Amazing!
