Australia Day 9 - Canberra Day Tour

17 May - Booked a day tour to Canberra as we have not visited the place before. The flip side is that it will be a 3.5 hours drive from Sydney, so the actual time spent at Canberra will not be much. Met up at the pick-up location at 8am at Holiday Inn Darling Harbour after a quick breakfast along the way. 

The tour stopped for lunch when we reached Canberra which we have a very full 8 dish Chinese meal (included as part the tour). After lunch, it was a full packed itinerary to visit locations after locations.

Before visiting the Red Hill Lookout, we also spent about an hour at the Australian War Memorial, which showcases the history and artefacts of World War 1 and World War 2. Personally, I did not find much interesting things there, so there is no photos for it. We reached back Sydney at about 8pm, found some Thai restaurant along the way to settle our dinner before returning to our hotel room to rest for the night.
