Journey through Australia’s Southern Highlands bound for Canberra, purpose-built with the goal of creating the finest capital in the world. Stop at historic Berrima, famous for its goal and early colonial architecture, then ’Connect With Locals’ at Gold Creek Station, where you’ll meet sheep farmer, Craig Starr, a ’Local Specialist’. Gain a deeper understanding of life on the farm before joining the Starr family for a Welcome Reception and ’Be My Guest’ Aussie barbecue lunch. On arrival in Australia’s modern capital, you’ll embark on a tour through Parliament House with a ’Local Specialist’. Inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II, the Parliament House is modeled on the shape of two boomerangs and is home to Australia’s House of Representatives and Senate. Later, ’Dive Into Culture’ and visit the Australian War Memorial to pay tribute to the brave Australian servicemen and women who have lost their lives in the past century in armed conflicts. Stay to hear an evocative lament, then join your Travel Director and fellow travelers for dinner.
