War memorial, national museum and rock climbing

We’ve had another wonderful day in Canberra packed to the brim with activities. We started with a visit to the museum where we explored the Australian garden, exhibits about Australia and the first peoples.

One bus headed off to the Mint while the other visited the Capital Museum to learn all about how the city of Canberra was planned and had an opportunity to build our own symbolic statues using Lego.

In the afternoon we visited the War Memorial where many children found ancestors in the wall of names and reflected by the eternal flame. Inside the museum we visited the discovery centre where we had the chance to sit in a helicopter used in the Vietnam War and experience life in the trenches.

After dinner we braved the heights of the rock climbing centre where Warrick was the first to make it to the top of the rope climb and those not so scared of heights challenged themselves to the top.
