Full description
Climb aboard an air-conditioned coach for a full-day sightseeing tour of Canberra from Sydney, stopping en route at quaint Berrima for a morning coffee break.

Upon arrival in Canberra, travel to the summit of Mt. Ainslie for a view of the city and its surrounds. Once you have got your bearings, go to the Australian War Memorial, home to an interesting display of war relics. Hear the history of the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) as you travel along a boulevard dedicated to the participants of 2 world wars.

After lunch at your own expense, join a private guided tour of the National Museum of Australia or National Gallery (subject to current exhibits). Next, take a private guided tour of Parliament House and gain an insight into the workings of the capital of Australia, with the opportunity to view the upper or lower Houses of Parliament when in session.

See The Lodge, the official residence of the Prime Minister, and travel the pretty, tree-lined streets to view diplomatic homes and embassies of foreign ambassadors, each a reflection of their fascinating culture and architecture.

Next, go to the Captain Cook Memorial Fountain in the Central Basin of Lake Burley Griffin and see its towering jet spray. While at the lake, you can admire the clean lines of the National Library and High Court. Enjoy views of the stunning National Carillon bell tower on Aspen Island, and the gardens of Commonwealth Park, before your return journey to Sydney, stopping for a dinner break at your own expense en route.
