First we drove to our caravan park. There we swam in the pool – it was great! We needed to cool down, but I felt warm in the pool too.
The first full day there we went to the water park. It had 2 seals and 2 crocodiles that were chained to the bottom which gave them an effect of floating. There were 4 water slides. One was a swan, another was a pirate ship, another a turtle and one was a frog. I loved it.
The next day we went 23m underground into the Chambers of the Black Hand. The dig for opal, and someone (Ron who owns the mine) has carved hundreds of figures in the sandstone walls. I saw Harry Potter, Nemo, and an invisible Wally and an invisible man! There are Wally’s hidden amongst the carvings. I found 18 out of 23, and I guessed that there were 23. I was right!
It was a bit scary going down into the earth.
The next day we packed up and went to Nindigully. There’s only a pub there next to the Moonie River. We got a lemonade at the pub and me and Charlie played in the cubby and playground there. There was a big lightning storm there too. I don’t like lightning, so I felt scared.
Next we’re going to the Bunya Mountains, so stay tuned!
P.S. we’re in Queensland!
