Hi everyone, we miss you all. As you know we are now in Australia and it is amazing here, just like New Zealand. We arrived last suday and was picked up from the airport by our friend James who took us to his familys golf club where we met his parents who are very lovely people. we then went to James house to settle in. the next day we went to Manly beach and sat by the sea for hours watching the surfers and some brave people swim (it was quite cold), Manly is a lovely place.
On Wednesday that week we went to the blue mountains which are huge and very beautiful, we saw the three sisters and the rain forest at the bottom of the mountains. to reach the bottom we walked down 1000 steps and saw alot of waterfalls and trees on the way, we then felt lazy and rode the steepest railway back to the top, very scary, it was set at 52 degree angle as we would have fallen out at 53 degrees. lol, it was that steep that we had to get in it laying down. it was a very beatiful and interesting day, we saw alot of birds and Kangaroos.
Thursday we went to Toronga zoo where we had the most amzing view of Sydney harbour. we saw all the different animals australia had to offer and more it was a lovely day, we also saw a bird show which was really funny and entertaining. That night we then went on th quarentine tour which was a haunted tour of the old quarentine station in Manly where the boats came in and all the sick people where kept in quarentine, very creepy.
Friday we went on the ferry across the harbour and saw the sydeny harbour bridge and opera house. we then went to a party at night in a big house.
Saturday we went to the famous Bondi neach and had a sunbath which was so relaxing.
Sunday we went to Palm beach which is also known as summer bay from Home and away, we saw the surf club which was cool.
James lives in a place called New South Wales where Sydney is located and the have so many beaches called the northern beaches and each and every one of them are amazing. really beautiful sights.
We are now in Queens land at the gold coast with their famous golden beaches, there is a place here called surfers paradise where all the tourist go for activities and advenures and nightlife, we are just down the road from their in a lovely relaxing resort, all we have done so far is sunbathed and swam in the pool, we will be going to surfers paradise soon and down to the beaches for a swim and a sunbath.
Love you all and miss you all so much. take care xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
