Travel Guide

Moving to Australia

Lily’s life as a 16-year-old is unlike that of her friends. An impressionable age, she is torn from everything she has ever known. The trials and tribulations of a  sixteen year old, and one being wrenched away from her life to the other side of the world. Life for a sixteen year old is not easy. Young love harder still.

The national park (Lily’s is fictional but is based on Cleland National park)

Ben works as the national park and the two bond over koala bears. An orphaned one! So cute! He helps her to settle in to the country, teaches her about how to enjoy life and allows her to fall in love. He’s a large part of her life in Australia so when he leaves, he leaves her bereft in many ways. Another park the author was inspired by is monarto-conservation-park

This novel really explores the range of flora and fauna of Australia as well with trips to the botanicgardens which really gets you wanting to go to the city yourself to explore.
