The person responsible for the emergency stop button on the dreamworld ride that killed four people was an 18-year-old on her first day on the job. however it is also understood the water levels on the ride were lower than normal and a sensor should have triggered an emergency stop but didn't. Two men and two women died on the river rapids ride on Tuesday when a raft flipped over. Two children survived the accident.

Why you should wear sunscreen all year round.

Every year around this time, the warnings start coming- wear sunscreen. However, many experts think that we should be wearing sunscreen all the time not just in summer. Whether at home, in the car, or at school, sunlight is always dangerous. New Zealand and Australia have the highest rates of melanoma in the world, and it's the fastest-growing cancer worldwide.

Botanic Garden.

The New Zealand Native Forest Garden at the Auckland Botanic Gardens
  Botanic Gardens.
Tomorrow on our trip to Auckland botanic gardens I really want to see the Native forest cause I want to go for a long walk alongside streams to see the epiphytic orchid plant that grows upon another plant. Also I want to see a tree fern groves plant and a palm tree. I want to see the fern groves the most because I haven't seen one before!
