Trouble in the Surf
Children's Book Reading and Activities
It’s a hot summer’s day in Sydney Town, and nine-year-old cousins Charlie Smith and Rupert Swallow can’t wait to dive into the surf at Bondi Beach. But the beach can be a dangerous place. Out past the breakers, where the seagulls swoop and soar, lurks a strong rip that can drag unsuspecting swimmers out to sea. Travel back in time to January 1907 and learn about the true-life incident that nearly changed Australia’s pioneering aviation history forever.
