On the first day, we’ll leave Sydney and head towards Canberra via the beautiful Southern Highlands. We kick off our exploration of Canberra with a guided tour of the reason the city exists – Parliament House. We enjoy a break for lunch (at own expense) before enjoying some free time to explore the National Museum of Australia. Here you will have 1.5 hours to explore the cultural treasures at your own leisure before regrouping at the Australian War Memorial. Here you will learn about the ANZAC’s involvement in conflicts around the world and reflect on the losses suffered by Australians in past wars. We enjoy a drive through the picturesque suburb of Yarralumla, where you can admire the national embassies of many countries, before arriving at our accommodation for the night at Canberra City YHA. The hostel is conveniently located close to restaurants, bars and shops so after you have checked in you can experience the nightlife of Canberra.
