One of the things that I have always loved so much about Australia is that it has a unique ability get my heart beating. No other place in the world has ever been able to get me as excited and passionate about life as Australia!
From the incredible (and sometimes dangerous!) wildlife, to the beautiful oceans and incredible cities, Australia really does have everything you need to get excited about life.
One of my favourite experiences has been going snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef! I remember coming back to the boat once and looking at my parents, who were there with me, and saying “wow, that is a once in a lifetime experience.”

The colours and fish in the Reef are unlike anything I’ve ever seen anywhere else in the world. I couldn’t believe how this reef, which was so shallow, could exist in the middle of the ocean like that! But there it was, right before my eyes.
The Great Barrier Reef got me so excited, and was a thrill unlike anything else that I’ve ever experienced. I may have swallowed a lot of salt water that day (ew!) but nevertheless, it was an experience that I’ll cherish forever.
