Thylacine at Dark Mofo. By Jesse T

I went to the closing night at Dark Mofo. Part of the closing night was to burn the Thylacine. A couple of days before the closing night I went to Dark Park with my Nan and Pa and I was allowed to put a note talking about my fears in the Thylacine. At Dark Park they had laser lights and loud noises, it was very dark and we could hardly see each other. The Thylacine was made of paper machae and it was almost five times bigger than a real sized one. On the closing night the Thylacine was carried from Salamanca all the way over to Dark Park where it was burnt. I think that because my fears were burnt inside the Thylacine then I don’t have them anymore or I am not as scared as I was before.

I really enjoyed this experience. I found it very interesting because I got to see a 3D version of a Thylacine with excellent features and unique stripes exactly how it looks in all of the pictures I have seen.  I also spent time with my family and cousins.  It was a good night because I was allowed to stay up a bit later than usual.

It was named after Quarry Bank High School. It included a line from the school song Quarrymen Old. He wanted to introduce some of his classmates to his Liverpool Institute classmate, Paul McCartney. Paul was only 15. A couple of years later, he joined The Quarrymen, as the second guitarist and singer. The next year George Harrison joined the group. Paul and George were classmates at the Liverpool Institute. On an addition on top of a double decker bus, George was brought in as the third guitarist. John and John’s bandmate at the time, Stuart Sutcliffe, came up with the name “The Beatles”. When drummer Pete Best joined, John, Paul, George and Stu, the original version of The Beatles was born.

Leonard in the Kimberley

 

This is my family riding dromedary camels  along  Cable Beach in Broome. Dromedary camels have one hump that is used to store fat. This is helpful for the camel if  it gets hungry as it can use the hump as a source of food or water. The camels take six years to train and began as a mixture of wild and domesticated camels. The camel that Oliver and I rode was called Jacko and is a retired racing camel.

 

This is an enormous boab tree! I discovered it at a rest area when I woke up one morning. Boab trees have thick trunks that are sometimes hollow. They have thick trunks to store water as the climate in the Kimberley region is very hot.

 

The gorge behind me is Emma Gorge in El Questro park in the north of the Kimberley region in Western Australia. It is a beautiful place and its hard to describe how beautiful it is. Gorges are deep valleys that have a river flowing in the bottom, they are formed by the water wearing the rock away over a very long time.

 

We are enjoying a natural bath in Zebidee springs in El Questro park. This is a natural spring that is heated deep down in the earth and is a fantastic place to hang out. The water was 34 degrees!
