Highlights of my trip around Australia
Uluru and Kata Tjuta, Northern Territory
Uluru and Kata Tjuta was the first interesting stop, it is pretty cool because they are actually big slabs of iron that are rusted. The walks around both are amazing especially looking at all the holes and the red conditions of the rocks. Underneath are my pictures and some explanations.
This picture is of me, my family and a few other people watching the sunset at Uluru.
The sunset was amazing because Uluru turned from bright red to orange to blue to purple and then to black.
Another cool part of Uluru and Kata Tjuta was The big walk around Uluru, it was long but we got to see every crack and rock on it, we also saw some cool cave art.
Here is some of the Cave art and the holes in Uluru. Uluru is a spectacular rock. I learnt that underneath all the rock is a huge slab of Iron that has rusted in the sun to get it’s red colour.
Kata Tjuta was cool as well like the walks and the gorges.
Alice Springs, Northern Territory
Alice Springs in an interesting town because it is behind a few big hills and has a river next to it. It also has a bit of an interesting history for how it became called Alice Springs. Underneath are pictures and explanations.
This is one of the pictures of us in the muesem in Alice Springs. We also walked around the Todd street mall after we went to the muesem.
This is a picture in front of a gum tree at the first Alice Springs Telegram station. We learnt a lot about Alice Springs, for starters, the guy who founded the town found a water spring and named the place after his bosses wife, Alice.
Darwin, Northern Territory
5 days in a place like Darwin can really get some good times up like free water parks and cool markets and sunsets. One of the main highlights of Darwin was the Mindil Markets which were at dusk on Mindil beach in Darwin. The Sunset was amazing watching from Mindil beach, but guess what a tourist boat went past when the last bit of the sun was going down.
Broome, Western Australia
Broome is amazing especially the Moon rises and beaches. Pearl divers have a big history at Broome and so does the WW2 other bombing raid. Broome is hot as so you would definitely go to the beach. We also went on a camel at the sunset on Cable beach, Camel riding is really fun but it actually is quite high off the ground. Here is a picture of a camel ride on the sunset.
Our car sadly broke down and couldn’t be fixed by the Broome Toyota workers so we had to fly back to Melbourne by a plane so I guess at least it was our first plane ride.
Two Weeks later.
My parents have got another trip to spend the time at a cool place and the aim is to get to Townsville to see my uncle.
Cairns is an amazing place, right near the Great Barrier Reef. It is a pretty big City right off the coast.
On the 3rd day of being in Cairns we went to the Great Barrier Reef, and on the ad on the boat it was meant to be a nice experience except it was kind of but the boat kept wobbling up and down. When we finally got to the Pontoon there was a slide and a heap of stuff like a big snorkelling part where you could see the coral and animals closer up and also experience some cool stuff. The slide was pretty cool as well it was huuuuge!!! The Great Barrier Reef was probably one of the best experiences of my life. My favourite fish there were the Parrot fish because of there bright colours. Here is the Pontoon we were on and also some fish pictures.
Hervey Bay, Queensland
Hervey Bay is amazing, from Fraser Island to watching Whales.
The main part of Hervey Bay I want to talk about is the whale watching. It was about 3 hours of watching amazing whales, the Humpback whale is an amazing whale, especially when they do the headslap, I learnt that the reason they leap out of the water is to get rid of barnacles and parasites. Whales are amazing creatures.
