Leith's trip to Hay

By Leith

We went in a sheep shed and we saw some sheep. I saw a slippery dip for sheep, too. We saw stuff for shaving sheep and I cheated at the maze. I am having fun.

Ballarat

by Jolie Wood

On the 4th of June 2013 we left Bendigo and saw 3 trams. We made it to Ballarat only hitting one bird. When we got to Ballarat we set up the caravan and went for a drove to a lookout. We went to a lake and there were lots of swans following us. One tried to bite my little brother. We went back to the caravan.

The next day we went to Sovereign Hill [A olden days gold rush town]. We went looking for gold. We went down to an underground mine. My little brother Leith got scared because it was dark and when we got out he said he wasn't scared. We watched how to make a wheel for a carriage. We got some lunch and my brother Ashdon got put in handcuffs for being an annoying little brother. We went for a walk and left.

On the 6th of June 2013 we went to a gold museum. It was about gold and the mines in Ballarat. We went back to Sovereign Hill to get a gold pan and a bell to wake us up in the morning. We got back in the car and drove to the eureka stockade. It had all these touch screen computers about the eureka stockade which was a war against the miners and these other people. We saw the eureka flag and it was a lot bigger than what I thought I would be. We went back to the caravan.

Bendigo

by Jolie

On the 1st of June 2013 we left Echuca and drove to Bendigo. When we got there we had lunch and went for a drive around Bendigo.

The next day we went to a pottery place. I went on the pottery wheel and made a bowl and vase. It was fun. We went back to the caravan park and had lunch. We went to this Chinese museum. It had the worlds oldest dragon and longest dragon. It was really boring. After that we went back to the caravan.

On Monday the 3rd of June 2013 we didn't do much because dad had to get the car serviced. When we picked up the car we went for a drive to the woollen mills and to these other places.

Echuca

by jolie

On the 28th May 2013 we left Wodonga. When we got to Echuca we set up the caravan and went for a to The Murray River. We saw some bunyip holes. After we went for a walk we went back to the caravan.

The next day we went to a wharf that was really tall because the Murray River rises really high when it floods. We went on a paddle steamer called Pevensey. We went along the Murray River and back to the wharf. We went shopping and back to the caravan.

On the 31st of May we went to a weir. We got some lunch and went for a drive. We went shopping and went back to the caravan park and played on the playground.

Wodonga

Monday the 27th may 2013 by Jolie Wood

sunny

On the 27th may 2013 we left Shepparton. We where going to Wodonga to stay for 3 nights. On the way we stopped at this big playground with a maze and a tree house and some big slide. After an hour or so we left. We stopped at Glenrowan where Ned Kelly got captured by the police. We also had lunch and went to a museum. Shortly we arrived at Wodonga. We went on the jumping pillow. After I went for a walk to the lake with my mum. On the way down we saw 2 rabbits so I chased them off because they were wild. Then we went back to the caravan.

The next day we went to a dam. It was really really boring. Then we crossed the New South Wales and Victoria border to go to Albury. In Albury we went shopping and bought a bunch of stuff. Then we went and got some lunch. After lunch we got back in the car and went to a train station with a really long platform. It had a long platform because a while ago people had to got on to another train to cross the border and that place was where they had to change trains. Then we went to a look out and went back to the caravan and had a disgusting dinner.
