Edith Falls

At Edith falls we camped with some friends (families) who were doing the exact same thing as we were! Our friends from Mataranka were James, Tom and Georgie and their parents were Ali and John. They were meeting some friends at Edith Falls and Dad turned out to know the father from building the Olympic Village. They were Sienna, Hugo and Teya and their parents were Justina and Tim.

One morning we all decided to go on a bush-walk . So we set off walking in the hot blaze of the sun on the track. We had to cross over bridges & leap from stone to stone across the stream.

We stumbled into a clearing where our hearts leaped, there was the most gorgeous waterfall we had ever seen it was: EDITH FALLS!

We made it!!!!!!!!!


It was cool but eventually everyone got in. When I first went under the falls, I screamed so loudly that the lady behind had to block her ears, but after the first time it was pro wii mario fadoosh!!!!!! It was the best day of my life (so far) except for Dreamworld.

This is the life!


When we arrived back at the campsite, James came around with the running sheet for the concert that we were doing in the night. Later on everyone brought their chairs to our friends, the Bohemians, campsite and after dinner they all watched the concert. Will played his trumpet solo of “A little Night Music” and I played “Hot Cross Buns” on the flute. All of the kids also did a play called “Super and Evil Kids”. Dad played the guitar and he played Big Red Car by the Wiggles. We all joined in with our seats and Tim provided free headlights.

Dinner with our friends.
