Hello again, everyone! I actually went to the prom in Australia, even though I am not in high school yet… Just joking!
This is a very different type of prom. The Wilsons promontory is basically a National Park, with most of the native wildlife of Australia.
We stopped on the way at the side of a mob of kangaroos lying in the sun and then, to emus (ostrich-like birds) walked out from the bushes just behind us.
Emus are native birds of Australia and are similar to the ostrich.
Then we set off on our hike. Only five minutes later we spotted a wallaby. Wallabies are smaller and darker and kangaroos and are really cute.
Along the way we stopped for lunch and then off again.
After a nice long hike we reached the beach.
The water was warmer than I expected, though I didn’t get to swim in it. Now we were on our way home – although we had a night hike planned.
Before we got in the car we saw our our very first wombat. Wombats are like giant guinea pigs, but are not as cute as wallabies.
I hope you enjoyed this prom – entation – ha ha…..
