Canberra is on Again !!I have had discussions with Jill and our Canberra trip for 2020 will depart on Monday 25th May for three nights/four days

The Canberra Visit itinerary has basically been finalised.

* Monday, 25th May. Depart Belmont. Arrive Canberra at approximately 2.30 with a visit to the War Memorial and an opportunity to lay a wreath at the Last Post ceremony.

* Tuesday, 26th May. Visit Government House, Burrunju Aboriginal Art Gallery (view Artists at work) and finally the new Portrait Gallery.

* Wednesday, 27th May. Visit Parliament House with tours, lunch, Question Time and Later to the High Court.

* Thursday, 28th May. The National Library before departing for home.

Obviously there may be some small changes as the time draws closer. Yes, it will be on the cool side but as we’ll be so busy we won’t notice it!   Prices will be very similar to last year’s trip ( Cost single $590; Twin share $440) but will be confirmed once finalised -  with a minimal increase in accommodation costs and hopefully a similarly small increase in the coach hire!

I’m happy to answer any questions, which you may have so please call  Nielsine on 0409992866 or email
