Escape From Britain! 2011 travel blog


We took a little trip to see our friend Bill who we used to work with in Bude. He's living in Canberra so we visited the sites there. We walked around a lot on Easter Saturday and saw a couple of old car rallies and the Old and New Parliament Houses and a couple of nice gardens along the way. In the evening we went to see a band play who Bill knows from home (Narooma). Had a good night. On Easter day we went to the war memorial which is really impressive and has a big museum attached to it so we spent some time in there too. Then we went for a walk around Redhill and saw loads of wild Kangaroos which was awesome!! You can get quite close to them. Once we got to the top of Redhill we watched he sunset and saw great views of Canberra.

On Easter Monday it was also Anzac Day in Australia so we were good and got up at 4.20am so we could go to the 5.30am dawn memorial service at the war memorial. There were lots of people there. We went back to bed afterwards!!!
