On holidays last week, we went into a tourist information centre to grab some walking maps. I was happily surprised to find a display of Christmas ornaments – yes, in April!

Even happier to discover the display was all based on Australian animals 🙂

It makes sense that a tourist place has Aussie animal ornaments as keepsakes (Philip Island hosts many international visitors) but I was surprised to find them in April – and they weren’t bundled into a bargain bin either.

Personally, I love the little penguins with their ruffled feather look 🙂

And yes I did come home with some of these lovely decorations – I’ll share some photos of them hanging a tree at some point.
