EVE AND JEREMY'S STORY PART 2 It was trying to drag the tent into the river. After a while the crocodile gave up and went back into the water. We watched it for a long time. Suddenly our headlights went out. It was the battery - it was flat. We were too scared to go back to the tent, so we slept in the car. In the morning we could still see the crocodile near the river bank. The next morning a car came. We jump-started our car and left.
DAY 13 HARBOUR BRIDGE We did the bridge climb - 3 1/2 hours. We climbed to the highest point of the bridge. There is a wonderful view from there. But if you are scared of heights, don't do the climb.
EVE AND JEREMY'S STORY PART 1 My girlfriend and I were camping near the Pentecost River. During the second night something started to shake our tent. We were in panic, crawled out of the tent and ran to the car. Fortunately the car wasn't locked and the key was in the car. I started the car and put the headlights on - and I saw a big crocodile.
DAY 6-7 BROOME Broome has got the most beautiful beach. It's 22 km long. Mum, Jack and I wanted to swim and lie on the beach, but Dad wanted to drive into the Kimberly wilderness and camp there. But we got lucky. In the evening we talked to tourists, Eve and Jeremy, at the hotel. When they had told us their story, dad was happy to stay in Broome.
DAY 4 and DAY 5 Later we watched Simon play the didgeridoo. Simon told us that most Aborigines live in or near cities now. Most have forgotten how to hunt. Another trip by plane tomorrow. We leave Alice Springs at 10 o'clock. Back to Perth. Two boring hours at the airport and then we fly off to Broome.
DAY 3 AYERS ROCK Dad rented a car and we went to Ayers Rock. We were driving for hours and suddenly there was this big red mountain there.
A WEEK BEFORE THE TRIP HEATHROW AIRPORT Hurray! We are going to Australia next Friday. We leave London at about 9 p.m. on Friday and arrive in Perth at 00.30 on Sunday. What a long flight! We'll watch all the films on the plane.
