Sydney and the Blue Mtns.

Today we started our morning with our first view of the harbor bridge and the opera house in daylight.

We then traveled to Koala Park to pet koalas and kangaroos, to watch sheep being sheared, and to learn how to swing the billy.

We finished our day with a trip to the Blue Mtns. where we ate lunch in a rotating restaurant overlooking the canyon. We descended into the canyon on the world's steepest train and out via gondola.

Today we traveled to the Low Isles to snorkel, view sea life via glass bottom boat, and learn about the biology of the isles - plenty of food, a little sea sickness, but great fun.

We've arrived!

Today we arrived in Australia.  After taking an in  country flight we arrived in Cairns at 12:20 p.m.   We claimed our luggage and changed into uniform in the airport in order to make our 2:00 p.m. performance and exchange at Trinity Bay School.  The students were pretty amazing after their long flight.  They did a great job in their performance, and after being treated to a "tea" that consisted of many Australian treats provided by the families of the students, they had a great exchange with the students.  We hope you enjoy the pictures and can see what a great time they were having while meeting the Trinity Bay Students.
