McAuley Year 10 enjoying the apple isle
Year 10 of McAuley Catholic Central School, Tumut are having an action packed time in Tasmania.
The students enjoyed visiting Trowunna Wildlife Park and the town of Sheffield (well known for its ever changing murals) after a rough crossing of Bass Strait.
At the zoo they met McAuley – the Tasmanian Devil sponsored by the school.
Next up was zip lining at Hollybanks adventure tours in Launceston. There they visited the longest park bench in the world (and proceeded to Lay along it).
After that they travelled south to Port Arthur, where they went on an eco-cruise around the southern-most point of Australi. The cruise included visiting world renowned sights such as Tasmans Arch and the totem pole.
They were also lucky enough to spot a whale migrating to Antarctica, as well as having Mr Hughes help cook tea for them.
Year 10 thoroughly enjoyed the Ghost Tour at Pt Arthur as well as exploring the land marks in the area such as the tessellated pavement.
The women’s prison in Hobart provided a valuable insight into the history of Hobart.
