Day 1


Your driver guide for the day will pick you up early morning and soon you'll be en route to our Bush Capital, cruising the NSW Southern Highlands through small typical Australian country towns. We'll stop somewhere along the way so you can grab a coffee (own expense) and stretch your legs before arriving at Canberra. We take a guided tour at Canberra Parliament House; an architectural masterpiece costing $1.1 billion. From the inner walls of power to walking on the roof, this is an amazing spot to explore.

We then take a break for lunch (own expense) before you'll spend two hours at your leisure at the National Museum of Australia. The modern National Museum of Australia is well-known for controversial expositions regarding key issues of Australia's social history, people and events.

After your free time, you'll re-join the group for a visit of the Australian War Memorial. Time for reflection as you'll learn about the legends of Gallipoli, the ANZACs and sacrifices and losses suffered by Australians in past wars fought around the world. We then take a drive through Yarralumla, one of Canberra's largest suburbs for a close look of the many national embassies. Each embassy is uniquely designed to reflect aspects of their country's culture.  


At the end of the day we'll drop you at your accommodation, the Canberra City YHA, located in the heart of the city with restaurants, bars, cafes and shops only minutes' walk away. Check in and relax, then head out into the night!



Day 2


After breakfast (included) you have the all morning and early afternoon free to spend at your leisure! From visiting the Old Bus Depot Market to hiring a bicycle and zooming along on Canberra's extensive and safe cycleways, from checking out multi-million artworks in the National Gallery of Australia to the Floriade Flower Festival in spring, there are lots of cool things to see and do!

At 2.30pm you'll jump on your express coach back to Sydney, where you will arrive at 6pm.
