Today our visiting German exchange students headed to Melville Caves in the Kooyoora State Park to experience the beauty of the Australian bush.

Along with some of their host siblings, Unit 2 and 4 German language students, and host parents, the students from Nullenburg Gymnasium in Stockach enjoyed a two-hour hike through the granite boulders and the Aussie bush.

The day included a barbecue lunch followed by marshmallows and cake.

German Language teacher Kristina Dean said it was heartwarming to see lifelong international friendships grow.
