Visit Australia – by Amy Harrison, KS3 student

Are you wanting to go on a holiday to a place that has lovely beaches and lots of amazing waves? If this is the holiday you have been waiting for, you should go to Australia. This is an amazing place and it has lots of features that you can explore. If this is is not a type of holiday that you would like to go to then you are missing out on lots of awesome places.

Also, the weather in Australia is so nice but be prepared, if you are wanting to have a warm holiday in summer you will need to make sure that you don’t go when it is summer where you live since it will be winter in Australia!

There are lots of historical features like, Australia was only found by an explorer 118 years ago. A First Fleet of British ships arrived at Botany Bay in January 1788.

If you go to Australia you will be able to take walks along the beaches. These beaches are so nice! There are lots of crashing waves. Mainly at the beaches you will see lots of people surfing. You may even see them ride a wave. The lushious blue water sends waves towards the shore. You could even have a day on the beach relaxing. If you are a surfing fan make sure that you bring your surf board so that you can ride the waves. These beaches are quite busy because they are a place that everyone wants to go to. Did you know that surfing is Australia’s native sport?

There are lots of activities that you can do in Australia, of course surfing but there are swimming pools, food festivals and more. These food festivals take place in Tasmania When you are at these places there are lots of stalls with tasters of the foods and you can buy the food if you really like it. If you are there at the end of the year then you are gonna be amazed if you stay at Sydney. This is because there are the Sydney Harbour New Years Eve Fireworks. Also you can’t forget, the fun water parks at the Gold Coast.

So what do you think? Are you booking your tickets now? If not, what are you waiting for? You would be missing out if you do not go! Also one last thing even if you are not a professional surfer you can still give it a go. You need to make sure that you are gonna book soon otherwise you will have to go in Winter and miss out on all the fun activities in the beaches. Australia is about giving new things a go!
