The War Memorial.

Location

Australian War Memorial, Treloar Cres, Campbell ACT 2612, Australia

Info

We had been up early since Batemans Bay and Julie also needed breakfast, so headed for Poppys Cafe at the War Memorial. There is so much to see and read at the museum that we needed more time and we were all weary. Julie especially and the kids had had enough by 1:00pm. Aidyn could not find us after wandering off on his own. (As he does. 🀨🀨🀨 ) We were stopped by security asking if we had lost someone. He went to to entrance and reported himself as lost. 😳😳😳 All reunited again we visited the wall of remembrance looked up my Great Grandfathers name took a photo or two. Wow there are a lot of names in this Hall of Remembrance. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί Back to the caravan we go.

Lake Burley Griffin.

Location

Captain Cook Memorial Jet, Lake Burley Griffin, Regatta Pl, Parkes ACT 2600, Australia

Info

A drive around Parliament House and quick stop off at the water jet on Lake Burley Griffin and decided to head back to the caravan. Back track: We managed to leave the washing on the line at Batemans Bay Caravan Park. πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯ My job was to drive back to Batemans Bay (132 kms each way) and retrieve it. Taleah remembered when we were 50 kms from Canberra Airport on the way to pick up Julie. Taleahs first response was that we have go back and get it. Immediately apparently. Then she realised, after a bit of reminding that we should pick up mum first. 😎😎😎 So we did of course.

Questacon.

Location

Questacon, King Edward Terrace, Parkes ACT 2600, Australia

Info

Similar to Perth's Scitech but much much better. We had nearly four hours and saw most things. You could spend a whole day here easy if you tried everything. Eight seperate sections to see. There is a lot of amazing stuff to see and interact with. It is very well laid out and easy to navigate. Having said that, Taleah is missing somewhere. Off to find her and then off to Tumut. She wasn't missing, she was just doing something it one of the sections, building stuff.
