Easter in Canberra

Thursday, 29 March

We loaded the car and headed off on the first part of the journey by driving to Coffs harbour as soon as we could in the evening.  Lachlan had been at a school camp the night before, so we needed to take his 'camp clothes' with us!!!

Good Friday, 30 March

A really big drive day (800 km) to arrive in Canberra late afternoon.  Well done to Nicola for driving and to the kids and Michael who kept themselves entertained for the 11 hours it took.  We checked into the Cliffton Suites, then after a freshen up met the 'family' for dinner at a delightful Pasta & Pizza restaurant.

Easter Saturday, 31 March

Annemarie was heading back to Sydney after lunch, so we all spent some time together at the park.  The cousins managed to be in one place at the same time and we took a few snaps.

Sunday, 1 April

Spending time at the Australian War Memorial was a must do for us. Our guide was so informative, the kids enjoyed the dioramas and it was lovely spending time with Julie and Stephen.  The memorial wall with it's placed poppies was particularly moving.
 Afterwards we had a closer look at the Nurses Memorial on Anzac Parade.
