Day 108 – Pambula

Posted from South Pambula, New South Wales, Australia.

Up and out of the smallest site we’ve had on the trip by 8am and still with plenty to do.  We’re hoping to get to Twofold Bay, South of Merimbula, today … about 250km away.  Not too far, but there’s the Great Dividing Range in the way making for some slow going.

That was all for much later in the day though, we still had a full day planned for Canberra.  No-one can say we’re not getting value out of our time on this trip, that’s for sure!

First stop was Questacon.  This is a bit like scienceworks in Melbourne.  Both are quite similar, but Questacon seems to have a lot more interactive exhibits.

Day 107 – Canberra (Day 2)

Posted from Sutton, New South Wales, Australia.

A busy day in Canberra today and not just for us.  The Queen was in town and even though it was a Sunday, sleepy Canberra was abuzz.

The busy day for us included Cockington Gardens, a cruise past some of the embassies, a tour of Parliament House, a look at the old one too, the Carillon, lunch at La Porchetta, checked out the view from the Telstra Tower on Black Mountain and finally the War Museum.  Oh and we bumped into the Queen along the way too.

Day 106 – Canberra

Posted from Sutton, New South Wales, Australia.

Another driving day today.  Quite a workout for the vehicle it was too.  Up hill and down dale all day.

We’ve climbed up as high as 800m today and been up/down a few 200m hills too.  Plenty of winding roads to keep me on my toes.

We finally got to cross Sea Cliff Bridge.  I’ve been wanting to do that for years. You know … build a bridge … get over it.
