The International Students’ Overnight Trip to Venus Bay



Australia is a beautiful country girt by sea. Our home is girt by sea is in a line in the Australian National Anthem and is also the reason why Australia has attracted many tourists. Exploring the beautiful Australian beach is also a fascinating thing for many overseas students.

On the first sunny weekend in March, Saturday March 2nd and Sunday March 3rd, 8 of our International students stayed in a caravan park in Venus Bay for an overnight stay to enjoy the beautiful Australian beach. The students had a stroll in the Coal Creek Historical Village, went digging for pipis in the sand in Venus Bay, walked on the beach at night in Inverloch, and also went to the caves and rock pools at Walkerville.

It was the first time the eight students had played on the beach, so you can imagine how excited they were when they were so close to the sea. They were dancing in the waves; wadding in the shallows, and playing tricks on each other; singing and yelling to the sea to express their excitement; and sitting on the sandy beach to dig pipis for a break when they were tired.

A lot of them commented that the two days were the fastest two days in their life. It was great to know that they had a great time and an unforgettable two days.

Many thanks to Dale for sacrificing his weekend to drive the students from Melbourne to Venus Bay, around Inverloch and Walkerville, and back again.
