Enjoy a picnic lunch in the lovely Belmore Gardens in the centre of Goulburn before arriving in our nation's capital. Visit Cockington Green, a delightful and fascinating display of meticulously crafted miniature buildings set within beautifully landscaped gardens.

Our morning begins with a guided tour of the Historic All Saints Church which was built in the mid 1800s as the railway station at Rookwood Cemetery in Sydney, and painstakingly dismantled and transported stone by stone to Canberra where it was erected in 1958. View the stained glass War Memorial window dedicated to those of the Parish and district who gave their lives in the second World War. Continue on to the National Museum of Australia for a self guided tour before enjoying some free time to browse the city centre and purchase your own lunch.

Day 5

Today we attend the National Ceremony to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day. On the 11th November 1918, at 11am the Guns of the Western Front fell silent and signalled the end of the First World War after years of continuous warfare. In the years that followed, this date attained special significance and remains so to this day. On this day we remember all those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts. (Please note: umbrellas are not permitted at the ceremony. It is recommended that you take a hat and sunscreen as there is no shelter). Following the conclusion of the service the remainder of the day is yours to explore the Australian War Memorial, taking the opportunity to purchase your own lunch today at Poppy's Café at the Memorial. You may choose to stay until closing where a moving Last Post Ceremony is held in the Commonwealth Courtyard and shares the story behind one of the names on the Roll of Honour.

Day 6

Celebrating the spirit of Australian democracy and the power of your voice within it, the Museum of Democracy at Old Parliament House is our first stop for the day. Be inspired by amazing real life stories of ordinary people who have fought to shape today's society. After morning tea, we will travel back to Sydney and The Hunter, stopping for lunch along the way.
