Oh, the places we’ve been…..

 

Would you believe that Wattle Three has been all the way around Australia this term? Well, we have! We’ve been to The Pinnacles, Uluru, The Great Barrier Reef, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Hobart and The Twelve Apostles, just to name a few.

 

 

On our way we have been learning a lot about the places we have visited. Did you know that the Great Barrier Reef is the largest living structure on planet Earth? It is an incredible 2 300 kilometres long!

 

Uluru was stunning. As it is so far from the ocean it gets extremely hot in the daytime and freezing cold at night.

 

 

Melbourne is a happening place. Being so much bigger than Perth, it was extremely noisy, particularly at night, when we were trying to get to sleep!  

 

 

Sydney was fun. We enjoyed watching the fireworks with the Harbour Bridge and Opera House in the background. Whilst we were there we learnt that the roof of the Sydney Opera House, which was designed to look like sails, is covered with more than one million tiles!

 

 

Overall, we had an amazing time, despite a few mishaps, like Mrs Darbyshire being kicked out of the waterpark in Cairns and an elephant stealing Meryl’s hat. We can’t wait for Miss D and Mrs Darbyshire to take us on our next adventure…. Asia!!!
