The first time I went to Canberra I was 5 and not really interested in anything besides the food, typical kid of course. Mom – We’re going to Canberra Me: do they have food there? Mom- yes Me: yay!! Let’s go to Canberra! Of course, the real reason she wanted to take me there was to immerse my young self in Australian culture and politics and to see the capital city of my dad’s homeland. To be completely honest, I don’t remember much except for getting sore feet (from all the walking) and I remember thinking we were in the jungle for some crazy weird reason? (btw it doesn’t look like the jungle at all) but kids imaginations and all that hoo-hah! So when my Mom and I decided to go on a road trip from Sydney down to the Mornington peninsula earlier this year, we decided that we would take the opportunity to stop in Canberra and spend a few days checking the capital out and MAN did it disappoint! Oh wait just kidding….. it was amazing! Hehehe! Tricked ya! Below I have listed a few of my personal must-see places of this incredible City, she’s no Washington but well at least you can see Roo’s here. Enjoy!
