Canberra is the capital of Australia, it is also called the City of Politics. Dave and I spent only 2 nights and 1 day in the city. It definitely was not long enough as there is TONS of things to see and they are all spread out. You think you can easily walk the distance but then once you start walking you realize that you were WAAAAYYYY wrong and the distance has doubled before your eyes!

Parliament Building:

Parliament is built into a hill therefore citizens can walk
over the building, giving citizens full access. Government
is there to serve the people. 

Painting of a Tapestry in the Great Hall.
A cockatoo is placed in the painting &tapestry to represent Australia.
House of Representatives: where all the big things happen!

Senate Chamber

Which one of these prime ministers was kicked out?
HMMMM.....I wonder!

View from the top of Parliament Building. 
Aboriginal Embassy:

In protest the Aboriginal Embassy has been outside the Old Parliament Building.
The protest has taken place for 40 years!

War Memorial: ( this is one of the best memorials in the whooole country!)

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
