Lisa's Australia Journal - aged 11

Today we were finally going to go to Australia!!! But first we had to get to the airport at three when our flight leaves at midnight. We found a way to occupy ourselves because there was a cinema for free. Soon we found the travelators so we went up and down on them none stop until I began to get thirsty so we had a drink and went to the cinema then I got hungry so we went down on the escalators and I had a nice cheesy pizza that was so big that I had to share it with mum and Sarah who very grateful.
We started to kill time by going back on the travelator again and tried to get rid of one of mum’s Malaysia Travel books by trying to give it away. We had to try and guess from peoples faces if they were travelling like we were but poor like us too. We were lucky in the end and the lady was very pleased. Soon it was getting dark and I was getting bored so to my relief it was time to go on the plane at last. I was so glad to have TV in it so I watched that had some dinner then I fell asleep…..

Suddenly I woke up to find we were in australia at last I couldn’t wait to get back on the ground and soon we were. it was baking hot ,and I wasnt used to it. The taxi took us to the caravan place and then we collected the it and we were in search of a caravan park…….

Soon we ended up at a place by the beach it was still very hot so we had a swim in the sea. It was fffrrreeezzziiinnnggg bbbbrrrrrr!!!!! I got changed and looked for a takeway food court we ended up having pizza again buit was very tasty we got back and snugeld into bed zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

We packed up and Fled

When I woke up the next day I was ready for a swim but first I had to have breakfast so I gobbeled that down and then got dressed in my cossie ,I was ready for a swim so I waited for mum and sarah to come but while I was waiting their were people shouting for help I thought they were teasing but when mum and Sarah came everyone was coming of the beach a lady said that the people who were shouting for help saw a SHARK!! . That made our stomaches turn so we didn’t go into the water, instead we packed up and fled.
The journey North was about a hour long (it felt like three hours) but it was worth it the campsite was lovely but the best thing was the pool, it was nice and refreshing after the car journey. For dinner we had leftover pizza but the good thing was, there was TV, so I had my eyes glued on tha for a while. I got my home work out of the way and jumped into bed.

I had a wonderful day today We went to find granny joan so I had some breaky then we got ready to go on the miny ferrie called a rivercat. We had to leave the van behind and then all we needed to do was go and get on. It was a lot of fun we saw huge pelicans and ibis’s. it took a very long time but we got to circular Wharf in Sydney harbour after an hour or so journey.

Mum spotted Granny Joan and we ran to her then we went and had a milkshake. We then decided to have a walk around sydney opera houseit felt strange that fomous movies were filmed here.

Soon our stomachs began to rumble so we had something to eat and we enjoyed it although the seagulls were a bit greedy. After that we went to the Botanic Gardens except it wasn’t like the one in singapore. There were huge lizards and jumping fish. There were waterfulls everywhere. Then it was alreadty time to go so we went back on the boat.

It was really hot so we had a swim and did some shopping, by the time we got back it was time for dinner it was the same as usual, salami, bread, cheese and tomato which is scrumdidlyumpcous!! We had a walk to let the food go down but on the way we saw a red back spider! When we got inside there was some people so told hem about it and in the end they stood on it. We finnaly went to sleep for a new dream.

Stupid Ducks

I am so tired. I had a thrilling day, we went shopping and found Grannny Joan and her friend Glenis. We had a nice long swim and gave granny Joan some birthday cake because it was her birthday in a weeks time. Then it was time to go onit Parramatte where we had a pinic dinner by the river. Sarah and I had a lot of fun feeding the ducks who were so stupid that they didn’t know if it was food or not. Then we had a walk into town and there were some people on stilts who were practicing for the festival of light.

We soon had to go and get a place were we could sit it was getting really exciting everyone was coming for the show! We had to wait a while so sarah and I had a ice cream. We looked up and saw huge bats as big as ducks and there were some hanging in the trees.
Suddenly it started people came round playing the drums with fireworks! There were fireworks were coming from everywhere the drums were so
LOUD!
We were all having a lot of fun, but it soon ended.

We said goodbye to Granny J and Glenis and went home to sleep once again.

Featherdale

The next day I was ready for a knew day, we had decided to go to featherdale a wildlife park I was really excited. First we had to get our homework done and go to the libray, so we did all that then we had to go to a shopping centre were it had travelators but nothing else interesting. We had to have lunch while we were there so we did then we had a wonder.
At last it was time to go to fetherdale. Mum as usaul didn’t know the way there so sarah and I had to ask for directions, which wasn’t easy because we kept on fogeting what people said. Eventully we got there to find it was closed ! we were all disapointed, so we went back had a swimmand some dinner then went to bed.

Today we had to get up early so we didn’t miss the wildlife park. We got ready and set off, this time we knew it wasn’t going to be closed….

At last we were there and no it wasn’t closed which was a releif phew! Before we even went in we got to stroke a baby joey AAAWWWWW!! We paid and went in there were loads of animals, but the first we saw was a huge wombat. We looked around and saw a dimond python and geuss what we got to hold it SCARY!!
There were loads of really cool animals oohhh. We saw a lot of birds like owls we saw some crocodiles and then we walked around and saw koala bears and guess what we got to stroke them they were so cute. Then we came across some food for the kangaroos we go some and fed the kangaroos they were really sweet. We looked around some more then it was time to go.
I was getting hngray so we had some lunch the usual lipsmakerous lunch. After that we went shopping again and then came back for a long swim which cooled me down after stroking those furry animals. At last we as usual went to bed.

Big Mouth

Today we went to visit my god mother, it was 2 hours away, it felt like five. We had to stop for lunch by the beach and I tried to see how many cheetos (round crisps) I could fit into my mouth’ the answer was 14! The beach was nice and sandy but the water vwas cold.
At last we got their the house was really and the best thing was she had a dog called sophie, she was so sweet. Holly (my godmothers child) sarah and I played around and had fun. We played with sophie until it was time for dinner. It was tortirilla with mince tomatoe and glorious cheese! We carried on playing then went to bed.

I had a fly buzzing day! We went horse riding in the country side, it was really fun although there were lots of flies and it was really hot.
After riding we got ready to go and swim in the Minnamurra river estuary. It was really nice and cold, there were a lot of fishes. We swam over to the other side and tried to dig to England but we didn’t get there, so I got into the hole and they burried me so deep that you could stand on me without me feeling anything. We swam back for some lunch, yum! We thought it was going to thunder so we got out and dried off.

Fights

Today we were going to leave for another campsite at Forster Tuncurry. We said goodbye to Lisa and Holly and Harrison, then set off on a eight hour trip. I fell asleep and woke up, it just took forever. At last we were there, the campsite was right by the beach which was nice but the water was cold. The campsite was so crowded. We came back had some dinner then went to bed. We stayed there for two nights and tried to catch up on some homework because Mummy and me had a big fight about it.

The following day we left once again, this time it didnt take so long as Mum didn’t want to have such a long drive so we decided to stop when we got tired. On the way up we stopped at Port Maquarie and Coffs harbour and then we found this wonderful campsite called Moonee beach. The water was really warm so we splashed around, it was lovely.

The next few days we just relaxed at a friends house. It was nice because it was sunny and the air was clean. It was a real pain because we kept on loosing stuff, and when we would find the missing things it would be covered in ants

It was quite soon when it was Australia Day so we went into town to celebrate. We had some lunch, then went to a stall were we could make candles. It was really fun, all we had to do was dip some string into wax until it got bigger, when it was big enough a lady would cut them into a animal, mine was a horse. Once we had done that we wet to a water park. The slides were such fun. The yellow one was the scariest, it was so scary.
