      Tamara, we took my Mum when she was over at Christmas because she's always been interested in politics, so we chose it over a few days in Sydney; we did a round trip via Broken Hill, Parkes (to see the Dish) and back through Hay (we stayed on a sheep station). It was great. We had 3 nights in Canberra and thought that would be long enough but it wasn't; like I said we could have spent a day in the War Memorial instead we crammed it into a couple of hours, Mum and I did the Old Parliament House while my husband took the children to Questicon and they were finished before we were (although I think they could have done more, they were just done) and we didn't get to the zoo/aquarium or the arboretum or a load of other places, the Mint was really only an hour or so but interesting (and free). I would definitely go back again to see the rest.

      My daughter went to Canberra on a school excursion for a week and they packed heaps in to 5 days! The Mint, war memorial, questicon, parliament houses, botanical gardens, cockington green gardens, laser quest, national dinosaur museum, australian institute of sports. She said 'it was amazing they just didn't have time to spend enough time at each place' I't was so much fun'. And thats coming from a grumpy 13 year old!!
