ways. The main day of celebrations
of Anglo- Irish background is
Easter Sunday. Some people go to

native animal in Australia, which is
an endangered species. Many
families have an Easter hunt in
their homes or gardens to see who
can find the most eggs on Easter
Australia is a fascinating country. It is full of strange and wonderful
places, unusual animals and amazing culture.
Australia is called “ the upside down world”, because it lies in the
Southern Hemisphere where winter comes in July and summer begins in
December. It’s realy the Lucky Country!
