Contoh Recount Text :
I really enjoyed my holiday in Australia. Last Sunday I visited a marine park called Sea World which is at surfers’ Paradise near Brisbane. It’s Australia’s largest marine park and I had a wonderful day there.
The first thing I saw was the Oceanorium where you can watch all sorts of sea fish and animal under water. There were huge turtles, sharks, and a beautiful tropical sea fish. The most exciting thing was watching a man feeding the sharks. He wore a special diving suit. Then I watched the performance of sea animals. The saw was in a big outdoor swimming pool. There were killer whales, dolphins and sea lions, and they did all sort of fantastic things in the water. One of the girls in the show rode around the pool on the back of killing whale, and another girl rode underwater on the back of a big turtle. After the saw I had lunch. There were several big restaurant at the park and I had lunch in a restaurant that was shape like a ship! Then I watched a wonderful water-ski show which was held on a lake.
There were lots of other 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 three loops upside down. But I wish I had gone on the roller coaster ride before lunch rather than after it!
