I live near the beach. It is so fun going to the beach all the time. I can snorkel and love going snorkeling. I have touched a blue groper! A blue groper is a huge Australian fish that can grow up to a meter long. In Sydney, you can also go surfing,swimming, diving, etc. Sydney is in the state of N.S.W (New South Wales) on the East Coast.
There are lots of parks, wildlife reserves, wildlife learning places,saving the environment education places, and lots, lots more. I have learned a lot of things by going to many of these places. There are also some amazing animals here. There are animals you may have heard of because they represent Australia. Like the kangaroo,the wombat,and the koala.
I went to Tasmania and took a picture of this Quoll.
And the bilby A bilby is a small Australian animal. It is also a marsupial. The name comes from the Aboriginal word long nose rat. It also has very big ears. And the goanna! A goanna is a big Australian lizard that can grow up to two meters long! And the possum--and I'd be here all night if I listed any more.
There are many Australian plants as well. Such as the bottle brush, the eucalyptus tree, the gum tree, and the banksia.
There are many Australian cultures. At my school there are children from China, Japan, Indonesia, and Malaysia. There are practically two children from every culture in my school. In kindergarten (in Australia we have kindergarten, then year one, then year two, and so on), there are two Aboriginal children. Aboriginal people are the original Australian people who inhabited Australia before the white people came. Aboriginal people have lived in Australia for thousands of years. Whereas the British people have only lived here for 200 years. I'll write again soon. Bye!
