The assessment of our trip in Australia

When we were in Autralia,we have lived in Sydney. We have stayed 2 month and we've done a lot of activities.

First, we have swum with sharks. They were very big and impresive but we loved it.

Then we've done a road trip to see the outback. It was so beautiful and disorienting! There were kangourous everywhere so we could take a lot of nice photos.                      

 

Also, we've explored the rain forest because we love adventure and nature. 6b7f

We were in paradise! 

We wanted to stay here for life but 2 weeks later we had to go back in Europe

 

 

With all these experiences, we'll keep goods memories forever

The Sharks : a threat?

Australian waters are the richest in the world in sharks. Half of the 350 species of sharks are in the waters surrounding the continent, but only 4 can be dangerous: the Tiger Shark, the Bull Shark, Oceanic Whitetip and the famous GREAT WHITE SHARK!

Psychosis revolves around shark attacks for about 50 years but between 1980 and 1990, there were only 11 deadly attacks (1 per year). We have more chance to die by car accident!  In addition, they are "shy" animals that are easily scared by fast movements, noise, or shapes they didn't used to see. We can conclude that sharks are not so dangerous.

It was founded
in 1829 by the captain James Stirling like the first spot of the establishment
of a new british colony and served as headquarters of the government until today.

It's a modern and pleasant capital city, boasting a desirable lifestyle and a great geographic location.

Perth's close proximity to Asia opens great potential for investors in energy, minerals, tourism and hospitality,
education and agriculture and food. It's the capital city of one of the world’s most significant mining regions,
so Perth is rapidly growing in both population and economic prosperity.
