Highlights of Canberra AF10
Highlights of Canberra
Starting at Mount Ainslie, expect a drive through the grounds of the Royal Military College Duntroon and perhaps to Mount Pleasant. A brief stop for some history at the National Capital Exhibition before a journey through the Parliamentary Triangle and then to Old Parliament House, where you’ll enjoy our own short guided tour to key parts of this magnificent building. Then to New Parliament House, which is where we usually break for lunch at the Queens Terrace Café. Drive through Canberra’s diplomatic district where you can spot the embassies of different countries represented in Australia, after which we travel to the Australian War Memorial (AWM). We’ll guide you around the central part of the AWM before you’ll have some free time to observe some of the many galleries dedicated to showing Australia’s roll in conflict. The final part of the tour is the Memorial’s Last Post Ceremony where a dedication is made to those who have fallen in service for Australia.
