Australia Fremont By Sandy Barker More than an interest in kan­ garoos and koala bears drew Mr. and Mrs. DanKerrof 104 Wilson Dr,j East Syracuse to Australia. They wanted to see their daugh­ ter and her new twin boys. The proud grandparents re­ cently returned to their Fremont home after a seven week vaca­ tion that included extensive travel on the east coast of Au­ stralia, as'weff as'a trip to New Zealand. Their first stop was naturally at the home of daughter Ann Kerr Rahaley and her husband Robert, in Benalla, 100 miles north of Melborne in the state of Victoria. There, Mr. and Mrs. Kerr enjoyed meeting the five- mdnth-old twins, Jason and Matthew. Mr. Rahaley, originally from Australia, is an animal pathologist who studied in the United States and met his wife while in college here. While in Benalla the Kerrs vi­ sited local wineries and the gold-mining operations. The couple also'had the opportunity to golf where kangaroos hopped on the fairways. In Melbourne the pair enjoyed the sophistication of this very old city. They\ also visited the beautiful botanical \gardens^ which include oak trees from all over the world and a man-made rain forest - - - - Canberra, capital city of Au- Z ' - r , ~ . ^, 0 © sWalla, was the next 'stop-fpr them, and like many cities in Australia, it is a totally planned town. Mr. Kerr said that it was similar to Washington^ D.C. with its government buildings set in the center of the city, An American designed the city, so the similarities are not surpris­ ing. New construction of art gal­ leries and cultural.centers, in Canberra is all aparLof-thajtc^ tivities surrounding the 1988 Bicentennial. The Kerrs flew to Cairnes, a city in northeast Queensland, and the closest city to the great barrier reef. There, they stayed at Green Island, a coral island that is almost completely na­ tional park. It offers a self-conducted snorkling trail and underwater observatory. According to Mrs. Kerr, by simply wading into the water and peering through a face mask, one is assailed by the day-glow colors of clown fish, parrot fish, blue star fish, and the hundreds of other forms of sea creatures that inhabit the reef. She was enthralled by the brilliant colors of not only the fish, but the orchids that grow wild and the hundreds of tropi­ cal birds. \Their bicds_havfi.ev^ erything you can think of in color combinations. Many of the most beautiful are.consi-. dered pests by the farmers,\ she added. Auckland, New Zealand, presents a modern skyline to those who visit \Down unoer* .as...:, .sr^iartz: A sleepy Koala Bear props himself in a tree: at the Royal Melbourne Zoo. In Sydney, which is larger in acreage than Los Angeles, Mr. and Mrs. Kerr met more Ameri­ cans than anywhere else on their travels. It is the largest city in the country and with its harbors, opera house and bustl­ ing traffic, has the feel of New York City in the 1930s. They wandered through the plazas and shopped in the small stalls and stores that line the streets. The final stop was Auckland, New Zealand, a harbor town on the~north island; Along with its 67 extinct volcano cones and sailboats belonging to one out of every six residents, the couple also enjoyed the very friendly New Zealanders. The area has almost no man­ ufacturing, and the farmers raise sheep and deer. It is noted for its fishing and the clean cbh- --4itipn-^f^ho^mes-^nd^io* <^^EaSp^^moop^g.

And in addition to' feasting;on excellent continental cuisine, -Mr. Kerr also found himself ap— predating the local beer that, \had a. lot of bang to it,\ as he '* recalled. After acquiring such wonder­ ful memories and with two grandchildren flourishing down under, it is likely that the Minoa couple will, re turn to the land that so beguiled them this spring.
