Alayna's Wish to go to Australia

Alayna is a 10-year-girl from Deland who loves to do fun activities! She has a very adventurous side to her, which is no surprise that her one wish was to go to Australia! She wished to go to Australia to do things such as to hold a koala and to scuba dive the Great Barrier Reef!

On November 10th, Alayna’s wish was granted and she was off to start her adventure with her family! Once Alayna and her family arrived in Australia, the land down under, they headed straight to their 3 bedroom apartment which was located on the Cairns Esplanade, located on the door step of a variety of the areas greatest attractions.

During Alayna’s stay, she was able to scuba dive the Great Barrier Reef just like she wanted to. It was her FIRST time scuba diving! Not too shabby, huh?! Alayna got to be up close and personal with the unique sea-life and creatures that were residents of the Great Barrier Reef. Alayna also was to hold a koala bear when she visited the Cairns Tropical Zoo! Not only that, she got to visit the kangaroo paddock, where she fed and petted them!

Alayna got to see the beautiful blue waters at the beaches and the breath-taking scenery of Australia. Alayna and her family created memories on this trip that they will never forget. Who can say that they were able to swim in world famous Great Barrier Reef or that they were able to hold a real Australian koala bear? Well, Alayna is one of those people and she definitely will hold these memories and this experience close to her heart.
