About Peter

Hello, my name is Peter, and I am eleven years old. I like to read, particularly fantasy and adventure. My favourite authors are Angie Sage, Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl, and J.K. Rowling.

I am traveling around Australia in a caravan with my Mum,Dad,baby brother and two sisters. My brother, Edmund, is two, and my sisters are named Lucy, who is six, and Susan, who is eight. My favourite places are Ayres Rock, Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon, Mt. Hothom, Andamooka, Gem Tree and Phillip Island. At Ayres Rock, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyonn, we walked for ages. At Mt.hothom we skied for the whole season and tobboganned.

I like to read, listen to audiobooks on my ipod, ride my bike sing, memorise poems, take photos, maths, cooking, campfires, and swim. My favourite songs are by Louis Armstrong.

My sisters and I are homeschooled. Mum tells me sometimes that I have to read a particular book. Sometimes Mum tells me to read a book, and I usually say “No way! I hate that book!” but then once I read it I usually find I love it. It was like that with J.R.R.Tolkein, Angie Sage, Enid Blyton and Roald Dahl. I knew that I’d like L.Frank Baum, though, because Mum had played some of the Wizard of Oz audiobooks in the car.


We came here to mainly to go fishing but also to, see Colleen and Jason our aunt and uncle. I must admit that I thought, I stood no chance of catching a fish, When we went to Tantabide, Dad and Jason went to the pier to try their luck,while Collin, Lucy, Edmund, Mum and I, […]

Things To Do When There’s Nothing To Do

When travelling, you can get bored. This happens quite often, it is not a holiday. You seem not to be able to do anything that you do often. You cannot seem to bring yourself to anything you do too often. You cannot bring yourself to do anything you usually play or do so you will […]

Our Time At The Snow

“Can we drive to the ski resort at the top of that mountain” we asked everywhere at Jindabyne. We wanted to get to the bush camps nearest to Perisher Ski Resort in the Snowy Mountains, New South Wales. But it was a bit of a bad joke; mum and dad couldn’t go skiing there, as […]


I really enjoy Christmas. This year will be our second Christmas on the road. We had a lot of fun at Port Parham last year. We camped at the beach. We got a heap of audio books. Santa used up all of the internet downloads – I found written on my card from Santa “P.S […]

A Week at Monarto Zoo

We are visiting the Monarto Zoo, the largest free range zoo in the world. We used our zoo member ship card to get in to the zoo. We are camping half a km up the road. We are in a little resting area. Two nights ago there was some silent lightening it was spooky to […]

Near Tarra Bulga National Park

Port Albert was much calmer today, and more pleasant without the gale force winds. Without the wind, the sun had much more bite already by seven in the morning. We watched boats launching, observed a beached sea star and chatted to a few other travellers. Dad was particularly tired as his sunburn was intensely itchy, […]

My Wonderfully Awful Mum

My mum is both wonderful and awful. The Good Points Mum lets us travel Australia. Mum lets me ride my bike almost anywhere and do jumps. Mum has let me have an ipod, camera and kindle. Mum lets us play lego. Mum homeschools us. Mum makes education mainly reading books and listening to audio books. […]

Going To Walhalla

We packed up again first thing and set off after Lucy, Susan, Edmund and I had played in the river.  Our drive took us past the Loy Yang power plant.  Its size and ugliness were mind boggling at close range, far more so than the distant glimpses I had before.   We spent far too […]

Port Albert, VICTORIA

The morning involved packing up ready to move on, and at 10am the caravan was hitched and ready to go. I helped get down the string that we used as a washing line, and Lucy removed the pegs from the line. We navigated out of Golden Beach down through Seaspray to Yarram. In Yarram, Dad […]
