© Neena Bhandari, The Hindustan Times

On a balmy summer morning, we snake our way through the wide Melbourne roads, yet to be inundated with rush hour traffic. The shutters in this city of urban flair are still down, apart from a few cafes where early risers are enjoying hot breakfast on cobbled pavements and joggers are making the most of the crisp morning breeze.

We are heading to the Wilson’s Promontory National Park, the southernmost tip of mainland Australia. I am filled with a sense of excitement and adventure, similar to the one felt during those short getaways from Delhi to the national parks and sanctuaries of Rajasthan and Haryana. The GPS (Global Positioning System) in our hired Toyota Camry prods, `Take the next exit’ to Princes Highway, where we clock a 110km/ per hour to keep pace with other vehicles and mammoth lorries.
