Drove home, but not before admiring the cherry blossoms down by the lake.
A tour of the Royal Australian Mint, the history of Australian coins, robots and powerful presses. More interesting than expected!
The National Museum of Australia has the Dreamworks Exhibition, sketches and maquettes, some fun computer tools and an exhilarating dragon ride.
The museum also has interesting Australiana and Alex cried at the extinction of the thylacine.
There was no bike hire shop, but we had a brief wander around Floriade, taking a shaky Ferris wheel ride.
Dinner at Dickson, back to the apartment exhausted.
In Canberra for a couple of days with B and Alex. The weather was miserable this afternoon and everyone was tired, so the other two returned to the hotel. I decided to ride the length of the new Canberra light rail track.
The route may not be the most scenic, but it was very pleasant just to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride between the city centre and Gungahlin, past the offices and parks of Northbourne Avenue, the racetrack and exhibition grounds and then the rows of new apartments.
There is something special about riding the rails, and I’m glad Canberra has got a commuter system at long last.
