Text 1 to answer questions 1 to 3!

 Last Sunday, I had a holiday in Australia. I visited a marine park called Sea World, which is as surfers Paradise near Brisbane. It is Australia’s largest marine park. Truly, I had a wonderful day there.
         The first thing I saw was the Oceanarium. It is place where visitors can watch all kinds of fish and animals underwater. There were huge turtles, sharks and beautiful tropical fish. The most exciting thing was watching a man feeding the sharks. He wore a special diving suit.
Then, I watched the performing animals. The show was in a big outdoor swimming pool. There were killer whales, dolphins and sea lions, and they did all kinds of fantastic things in the water. One of the girls in the show rode about the pool on the back of a big turtle.
After the show, I had lunch. There were several big restaurants at the park and I had lunch in a restaurant that was shaped like a ship! Then, I watched a wonderful water-ski show which was held on a lake.
        There were lots of things to do at the park. There was lake cruising, a train ride, a big water slide, swimming pools and an incredible roller coaster called the corkscrew because it goes through three lops upside down. But I didn’t go on the roller coaster. I wish I could do it next time.

I have an exciting experience visiting Raja Ampat. It is a famous island located off the north west tip of Bird's Head Peninsula on the island of New Guinea, in West Papua Province. It is well known as a diving heaven for people around the world.
Raja Ampat covers a very wide area of land and sea, where many types of corals, coral fish and mollusks live. It makes Raja Ampat the most diverse living library for world’s coral reefs and underwater biota.
Besides that, Raja Ampat has a beautiful scenery, especially of its underwater corals and beach. Under the water of Raja Ampat Island, I can see many natural coral reefs never touched by humans. I can also find many fishes of various colors and types. They usually hide between the coral reefs to take a rest or breed. In addition, I can explore many war planes and ships sunk in World War II.
