Canberra 10.+11. Dez

So we drove on to Canberra but had to stop frequently to take a picture of the gorgeous views.

Braidwood is a small historical town.

Don't know the name of this river, but it is just beautiful!

I actually should have started a collection of letter boxes in Oz :)

Since my battery was flat, Silke took most of the pictures in Canberra. Until I have them, I can just provide the few ones I took... :)
These are the Old Parliament House Rose Gardens

View from the Parliament House to the Old Parliament House and the War Memorial. We did a tour in the Parliament House which revealed the ideas that flew in its construction. For instance, the colors and timbers used, represent the Australian Continent, its forrests, desert and island-character.

This flag is about 40kg heavy and they change it monthly, so that the colors are always fresh and beautiful!

An impressive story about a brave man in the war.
