Canberra

Canberra - Ausrtalia's National Capital
View along Anzac Parade from the War Memorial to Parliament House.
We spend a lovely winter weekend in Canberra recently and among other things visited the War Memorial.  It reminded me of a story I wrote when recording my family history 12 years ago so I dug it out. The text will be much longer then my usual posts but may amuse the Baby Boomers among us.

The story is titled "Lest we Forget". I will spread it over the next week and a bit as I take you around the War Memorial.

  2. I'm really looking forward to this glance back in time.
    Love the pic of Canberra - such wide streets.

  3. Haven't been to the War Memorial for a long time. It will be good to be taken around by you.

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.

I wanted to visit this area to see the Grampian mountains.  We had so little time as by now we were hitting out deadline,  I must visit here again.
