Blue Hills

While Canberra is a very liveable city and I enjoyed my years there I am no fan of suburbia and Canberra is just that -- neat, ever so neat suburbia.   With a day to spend I just wanted to get out of there and head towards the mountains that form such a delightful frame to the horizon of the city.


  1. It's a good thing that the outdoors are so within reach, because Canberra can be lacking in urban pleasures.

  2. As Freddie says:
    "I want to break free"

  3. AH, see, I would have gone inward ... I feel I am at my best in the inner-city. It is where I feel the most connected ... However, Civic is not what I would call inner-city ... not like Darlo ...

  4. That's the problem with Canberra ... no heart.

Gundagai exploring

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
