Melbourne Camp – Day 1

Day one was a very busy day. We caught the train to Flinders Street Station before battling our way through the crowds and onto trams as we travelled to our accommodation.

We made our way to the zoo on a packed tram, which had all 96 of us, plus members of the public.

Highlights at the zoo were the seal show, tigers and the entertaining orang-utans.

After the zoo we caught a train back towards the city where we walked along the Yarra River along Southbank, ate take-away food at crown and watched Grown Ups 2.

We arrived back at our hostel on more packed trams before going to bed.

  1. My favourite part of the day 1 was when we went to the movies to watch grow ups 2 because I through that the movie would be boring because I had already watched it twice but it was twice as funny as the first time I watched.
    My favourite animal at the zoo was the seal because it was really talented and showed us how we could help the seals be able to live better in the wild. I liked when the seal did the story.

  2. My highlight on day 1 was going the wonderful cinemas to watch grown-ups 2 because it was extremely funny and because I had never seen grown-ups 2 before so for me it made it more enjoyable to watch, because I don’t know what the characters were going to do in and during the movie.

    My favourite part about the zoo was watching all the animals in their cages that they’re in because each cage only have one type of animal in them and their cages are set out like the habitat if they are in the wild, But I liked the meerkats the most because of how small and cut they looked when they were under the rock hiding from the rain under the rock that was in their cage.

  3. My favourite part of day 1 was the zoo because we got to see the animals from other places and see them having fun.
    I like the lions the best because when we left they started to roar at us and it sounded magnificent but I think they were wanting to go to sleep because they were laying down.

  4. My favourite part of day 1 was the movie Grownups 2. I loved grownups 2 because it was extremely funny. Some of my favourite bits were when the baby said when his mother forgot about her and her husband’s anniversary he said “ooo that cold! Everyone in the unit was laughing like crazy. My favourite line in the movie was ” WHHHHAAAAAT!!!!!” that was said by the fluzoo family.
    My favourite animal was the lions because there were looking strait at us and they were roaring which was exciting because we don’t usually get to hear a lion roaring every day.

  5. My favourite part of day one was when we got to the Crown Casino because it looked really amazing and it had really magnificent things to look at like the crystals that were on the ceiling and the water fall thing that was next to the stairs. I found the Crown Casino really fantastic and gigantic when I firstly walked in. My second favourite part of the day was the movie because it was funny and the movie was really interesting.
    My favourite animal that I saw at the zoo was the Orang-utan’s because they kept of fighting and they were really funny. The orang-utans kept on laughing at the other orang-utan and they kept on making themselves sad. The other orang-utan kept on pushing and slapping the other orang-utan which made that orang-utan really sad and upset.

  6. My favourite part of day one was going to the amazing Melbourne zoo. The Melbourne zoo was fantastic because it had a different variety of animals to look at. They had all different enclosures and different species of different animals. They had two different shows. One was a tiger show which was telling us a message about trying to save tigers in the wild. They released herbs in their enclosure and we watched as the tigers noticed a different smell. The other show was a seal show. The seal show also was telling us to be careful where we put our rubbish, so that seals and other animals in the wild don’t choke and die. The seal did many different tricks, as it was trained. They were both two very good shows that also highlighted my trip to the Melbourne zoo. The downside of this fantastic place is that it started raining during our visit.
    My favourite animal at the Melbourne zoo was the spectacular orange orang-utans. I liked them because they acted like humans, as they should’ve because they are humans’ first wild cousins. They were entertaining as they were swinging all over the place, and did amazing tricks and jumps, without falling. But one part made me sad because Guguei laughed at one, and then the orang-utan hid under its blanket. It was also my favourite animal because there was also a baby one in another window which was even more active than the others. But my question is, why did they separate the baby orang-utan with the other orang-utans? Thank you for the great experience, teachers.

  7. My favourite part of the first day was going to zoo and seeing the seal show. I thought that seal show was the most amazing because the way the seal can do that.
    My favourite animal was the tiger because they are like patrol guards and watch every thing and know when some thing has happened in the home/habitat.

  8. My favourite part about day one was that we went to go see grown-ups two because it is now is my third favourite movie. It was also really hilarious. My favourite part is when everyone attacked each other. My favourite animal was the butterflies in the butterfly room. I loved the butterflies because there were all these different colours and there were huge butterflies and tiny ones.

    My favourite part of day 1 was when we went to the movies and watched grown-ups 2, I found the zoo quit fun as well except for the thunder storm and rain the first day, at the zoo. We had a lovely dinner which I really enjoyed because we got to have anything, I disliked the part how we had to unpack everything and get our room nice, neat and tidy.
