    Great trip

    Our intent for this trip was to see the countryside, Canberra just happened to be on the agenda. We expected to spend most of the time driving but wished that we had more time to spend at the War Memorial. The Memorial is huge and one of the best displays of war history that we have seen. The driver was great....but a long day for him.

    Great day trip

    I did the Canberra Day Tour from Sydney on Sat 10/3/18 with the Colourful Trips company. Had a great Tour guide: Greg who gave us lots of information about the parliament building we visited, and the war museum, and national embassies. No food included. Definitely worth going.
