Trans Tasman Tour 2015

It's less than 24 hours until I'm departing NZ for my Trans Tasman athletics tour in Sydney! You're probably wondering what Trans Tasman is... well it's an athletics competition between Sydney, Austrailia & Auckland, New Zealand.

Heaps of athletes aged 10-11 trial to get into the athletics Auckland team. Every year this team gets to compete either in Austrailia or New Zealand. I've always wanted to go to Austrailia so I trialed and luckily got in. Not only is this a sporting event I get the opportunity to visit Sydney attractions with my grade managers and friends.

Some of the activities we will be doing are; ten pin bowling, aboriginal show, movies, Jamberoo adventure park and shopping at Mac Arthur's shopping centre. Tourist Attractions we will be visiting are; Opera house, Sydney aquarium, Sydney Wild World and Darling Harbour.

We'll be sleeping in our own rooms inside a boarding college named St. Gregory's in Campbelltown. This college has a massive outdoor pool, pool tables, tennis court, flat screen t.v and cool/fresh airconditioning. If you ask me... this sounds awesome!

I can't wait for this amazing experience. I'm glad I trialed or else I'll be missing out on a once in a life time opportunity.
