Now into the fourth week of his worldwide travels, Junior Membership Club Leader, Maximus, has found himself enjoying the sites Down Under in Sydney, Australia.
Writing in his latest postcard, Max said, "I'm having a great time here in Sydney, it's a fantastic city even if it is a little cooler at this time of year! Although I sadly had to miss the game against Scarlets at the Rec on Saturday, rest assured, I'll be back for the opening match against London Welsh on the 13th September!"
These are some of the facts Max learnt in Oz:
- Australia’s low rainfall makes it the driest inhabited continent on Earth
- Despite its usual lack of rain, the 2011 floods in the tropical Australian state of Queensland covered an area larger than France and Germany combined
- Because of Australia’s unique ecosystem, it is home to many animal species' that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. These include the Kangaroo, Platypus and Koala Bear
- The name ‘Australia’ comes from the Latin word ‘australis’, meaning southern.
Another postcard from Maximus will be arriving with us again next week, so be sure to check back on bathrugby.com, Twitter and Facebook for updates on his worldwide adventures. Who knows where he will end up next!
