It was a wet and windy morning, as Year 6 set off for Canberra. The bus trip to our first stop was swift and we enjoyed morning tea at Sutton Forest where already the weather was looking kinder. By the time we arrived in Canberra the sun was shining brightly, although the wind was still chilly.
Our first stop was the Canberra Exhibition where we learned all about the formation of the city of Canberra. From there we drove to The National Museum of Australia. We split into groups and explored the interactive displays. Then it was onto The National Gallery where we had a guided tour. The group I was with enjoyed viewing a number of old and new art works, with an excellent guide.
After arriving at our motel we all unpacked and then enjoyed a delicious dinner of spaghetti bolognaise and chicken and noodle stir fry. Before heading out again for a visit to Telstra tower.
While up the tower we ran around outside until the cold night air drove us inside. After that we explored a display about the history of telephones. Then It was home for bed.
