Canberra … cold frosty capital country

8.34pm, Sunday 6th May, Northbourne Avenue, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

Evening, folks, I’d forgotten how cold it gets in the frostbowl around Lake Burley Griffin, otherwise known as Canberra. But it does have some great places of national significance, so no sleep-in for me on my day off. I was at the Australian War Memorial when they opened the doors at 10am this morning and was lucky enough to join the first guided tour – where this lovely bloke bought a lot of the names on the Honour Rolls in the Commemorative Area to life with stories of who they were, which town they came from, and their stories – some funny, some sad, mostly unforgettable.

On a cold Canberra morning, I couldn’t think of a better place to be. This is looking down to old Parliament House in front of the new one up on ‘the hill’.

  1. It’s certainly frosty but doesn’t Canberra look a picture right now with all the autumn leaves? Looking forward to catching up with the indomitable Jane Ferrari at tonight’s Yalumba dinner at the Royal Canberra Golf Club.
