    Day 1 - Sydney - Canberra

    Journey through Australia's Southern Highlands bound for Canberra, purpose-built with the goal of creating the finest capital in the world. Stop at historic Berrima, famous for its gaol and early colonial architecture, then visit Gold Creek Station and meet local sheep farmer and 'Local Specialist'. Gain a deeper understanding of life on the farm before joining the Starr family for an authentic Aussie barbecue lunch. On arrival in Australia's modern capital, you'll embark on a tour through Parliament House with a 'Local Specialist'. Later, 'Dive into Culture' and visit the Australian War Memorial to pay tribute to the brave Australian servicemen and women who have lost their lives in the past century in armed conflicts. Stay to hear an evocative lament, then join your Travel Director and fellow travellers for dinner with wine.

     

    Day 2 - Canberra - Beechworth

    Admire a city designed for a young nation as you ascend to the summit of Mt. Ainslie for panoramic views of Canberra with its man-made lake Burley Griffin and award-winning architecture. Cross the mighty Murray into Victoria and visit its best-preserved gold rush town, historic Beechworth. We overnight in one of Trafalgar's 'Stays with Stories', immersing ourselves in the town's country-style gold rush heritage. Delve into the history of Australia's heady gold rush days after a brief orientation, with free time thereafter to explore its antique shops, galleries, the museum and the legendary Beechworth Bakery, self-proclaimed as 'Australia's Greatest Bakery'.
