Six Day Melbourne to Sydney Heritage Drive
Day five – Albury-Wodonga to Canberra
It’s one good thing after another when you visit Canberra. Award-winning food and wine, iconic national attractions and native wildlife in beautiful national parks are just the tip of the iceberg in Australia’s capital city. Canberra is the perfect self-drive destination with no tolls, minimal traffic, ample and affordable parking and a range of world-class attractions all located close to each other.
With just one day to discover the city, waste no time. Take a sunrise hot air balloon flight with Balloon Aloft and view the ‘bush capital’ from high above.
Back on the ground, venture into the fascinating display of meticulously crafted miniature buildings at Cockington Green Gardens, or see over 150 skeletons and realistic robotic dinosaurs at the National Dinosaur Museum. Take the ultimate museum tour at the National Museum of Australia for a comprehensive overview of Australia’s history. Discover historical gems in the Treasures Gallery at the National Library of Australia, including James Cook’s handwritten Endeavour journal and Australia’s first pound note.
Go behind the scenes at AIS – Australian Institute of Sport with an elite athlete as your guide. And finally (phew!) sample cool-climate wines at one of thirty-plus wineries and get a reservation for a meal at an excellent city restaurant.
