What to do in Canberra?

Australian Capital – City of Canberra

Canberra is a city of 300,000 people most of which work directly or indirectly for the Federal Government which, as we know, works for all Australians. So if you are Australian, you own this place, you are the boss. 🙂 Here are some bossy things to do.

Parliament House Canberra

Parliament House in Canberra The main attraction is the work house (Parliament House) where your representatives slave away making up rules and talking a lot. The original cost of Parliament House was $1.1 billion. For that you get great views / photos from the top of the building of Canberra without Parliament House in them. There are also paintings, marble, comfy chairs and the occasional ‘pollie’ on a mobile phone.

Parliament Casino?

A thing to do whilst in parliament is to think up ways in which you can get a return on your investment. Selling it to the Chinese or a Parliament Casino are two popular options. Don’t forget to let someone know of your idea before you leave. Times are tough, it might happen.

Questacon National Science and Technology Centre

The Questacon National Science and Technology Centre is particularly great for kids, adults and everybody in between. Very interactive and engaging. You have to try a few things rather than stand back and watch. It will be fun.
