Australia Day 2005 26th January
|Australia Day was a great Day with great
typical Sydney weather.
The night before, we asked our favourite tailor to cut
a Australian flag boxer short for our
favourite kangaroo, here is the view of the try.
Early in the morning our kangaroo went to Parramatta
where a brilliant huge amazing hot air balloon in the shape of a kookaburra was
the main attraction: Our kangaroo just loved it !
The Hot air balloon is the property of Marti's Canowindra Balloon Fiesta which
is the biggest hot air balloon event in Australia.
The next 'fiesta/festival' is on April 22-25 2005. Canowindra, in case you don't
know is near Orange, just 3 hours out of Sydney.

Grass Hockey event at the 2004 Athens Olympics.
