What to Expect
Join a memorable Canberra day trip including a visit to the Floriade for the very best way to explore the sights of our nation’s capital, plus a little bit extra! Travel with a small group through Australian bush and sheep country and visit all of Canberra’s highlights during a fun and personalised day out.
Get collected from Sydney early morning as you join your friendly guide en route to the Bush Capital, cruising the New South Wales Southern Highlands through typical small Australian country towns. Stop along the way so that you can grab a coffee (own expense) and stretch your legs before arriving at Canberra. Here you will 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.
Take a break for lunch (own expense) before you head to the iconic event of Floriade, which runs one month a year (from mid-September to mid-October) and showcases one million flowers in bloom throughout Canberra's Commonwealth Park! After your time walking around this flower lovers' paradise, you will be taken on a visit to the Australian War Memorial. Time for reflection as you'll learn about the ANZACs, the legends of Gallipoli, and all of the sacrifices and losses suffered by Australians in past wars fought around the world.
Afterwards, take a drive through Yarralumla, one of Canberra's largest suburbs for a close look at the many National Embassies. Each embassy is uniquely designed to reflect aspects of their country's culture! After a fun and fact-filled day, you will head back to Sydney.
