Canberra

Australian-War-Memorial-Canberra-ACT

Last weekend I went to Canberra, what a beautiful city! It was a nice day with a blue sky. First we went to Parliament House where the driver guide showed us around. On the rooftop we took some beautiful pictures. After the Parliament House we drove around the consulates and embassies districts.

Everybody had the option to visit the National Gallery of Australia or the National Museum of Australia. I chose the National Museum of Australia, it was very interesting. After the museums we went to the Australian War Memorial. The Australian War Memorial was opened in 1941, and is widely regarded as one of the most significant memorials of its type in the world. The memorial includes an extensive national military museum. At the end of each day, commencing at 4.55pm, is a Last Post Ceremony at Pool of Reflection. That was very impressive.
