My holiday in Australia: Polly Burton, aged 7
Saturday 15 November 2008
WHAT I LIKED
I liked it when we went camping because I had my birthday there and kangaroos hopped around the tents. We went snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef. I liked it when I saw my cousins, who live there.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE
I did not like it when my ears popped on the plane, or when a kookaburra pinched my burger.
WHAT I SAW
I saw lots of kangaroos and in the rainforest I saw a frog in the toilet! I saw a snake and lots of bats. From the aeroplane I saw a big red rock and dry rivers.
WHAT I ATE
I ate Vegemite and barbecued food. I also went to a brilliant noodle bar in Townsville, Queensland.
WHAT I BOUGHT
I bought lots and lots of things, but mostly toy kangaroos and koalas.
WOULD I GO BACK?
I would definitely go back, but mum and dad say only when I can pay for myself!
