Arrival in Australia

Our night flight with Singapore Airlines finished as we flew down the west coast where we watched the most wonderful sunrise from the window of the plane. Some of the flight was spent researching a few facts about Australia.

Did you know:-

It is the worlds largest island.
It is the only nation that began as a prison.
It is the home of the largest living thing on earth – the Great Barrier Reef.
It has more things that will kill you than anywhere else in the world – the 10 most poisonous snakes in the world, and five creatures i.e. funnel web spider, box jelly fish, blue ringed octopus, paralysis tick and stone fish are the most lethal of their type in the world (good to know when you’re camping in the bush!

If you are not stung or pronged to death then you may be fatally chomped by a snake or crocodile.

There is no place in the world like it. 80% of what lives here lives nowhere else in the world and it lives in abundance. Australia is the dryest, flattest, hottest, infertile and climatically aggresive of all the inhabited continents. Welcome to Oz!

After a long time spent in the the customs hall (Australian Customs are very strict – we even had to declare a bit of mud on our walking boots and the fact that we live in a rural area) we were met by our friends John and Diane. Lots of catching up to do.

At 38 degrees it was the hottest day of the year so far so we went for a walk along the coast and had a coffee overlooking the Indian Ocean. After much more talking, drinking and eating we fell into bed.
