1Our package

The Highlights of Canberra is Canberra Guided Tours’ most
popular tour and it’s not hard to understand why. This experience packs as much
as possible into a single day, giving the client the best possible of
experience and context of Australia’s Capital in the time allowed.

Following pickup at your accommodation in one of our
comfortable vehicles, the tour progresses to one of Canberra’s most beautiful
vantage points at the top of Mount Ainslie. From the lookout, your guide will
explain the growth of a young city, the two-tiered colonial and capital city
history and point out places of interest and key attractions, all while you
survey the tremendous design of Canberra’s architect, Walter Burley Griffin.

From Mount Ainslie, expect a drive through the grounds of
the Royal Military College Duntroon and perhaps to Mount Pleasant where you’ll
be delighted to an alternative aspect overlooking central Canberra.

A brief stop for some history at the National Capital
Exhibition before a journey through the Parliamentary Triangle and then to Old
Parliament House, where you’ll enjoy our own short guided tour to key parts of
this magnificent building showcasing more than 50 years of Australia’s
political history.

From the Old to the New, it’s then just a short journey up
the Hill to New Parliament House, which is where we usually break for lunch at
the Queens Terrace Café, a café with a variety of food options, sure to satisfy
even the most diverse tastes.

Once refuelled, we’ll take you through this living,
breathing hub of Australian Government and democracy. Many of our guides have
worked here in other capacities as political advisors and government officials,
so be sure to ask about the daily happenings of APH.

As mid-afternoon rolls around, we’ll leave New Parliament
House for a drive through Canberra’s diplomatic district where you can spot the
embassies of different countries represented in Australia, after which we
travel to the Australian War Memorial (AWM). We’ll guide you around the central
part of the AWM before you’ll have some free time to observe some of the many
galleries dedicated to showing Australia’s roll in conflict.

The final part of the tour is the Memorial’s Last Post
Ceremony where a dedication is made to those who have fallen in service for Australia.
It often leaves no dry eye.

From the Australian War Memorial, we’ll return you to your
accommodation or place of convenience (we can always recommend somewhere good
for dinner in Canberra).
