Canberra - Our Nations Capital

The main purpose of our trip to Canberra in 2015 was to attend the commeration service to mark 100 years since the Gallipoli landing. Regulars on our website will know that we have been to Canberra on a number of occasions, all the main-stream tourist venues have been visited and photographed and these can be seen elsewhere in pages in 'Our Trip photo gallery'. The 2015 Canberra trip was highlighted by our visit to the National Aboretum...photos of which are included in the slide show below.

Canberra City - April 2015

Canberra City is our nations capital...its a beautiful city with a multitute of parks and gardens...we always enjoy our visits to this city...we have been there many times and we have done all the touristy things, photos of these can be seen in other previuous trips we have done..this time we looked at other things as well....

Firstly, the video to the left is of the dawn service held in front of the War Memorial, a crowd of 50'000 was expected...128'000 attended!.The vid runs for 52 sec, I apologise for the ads, I have no control over that.
