Canberra in Autumn

A spur of the moment decision led us to Canberra this past weekend. It’s only 2.5 hours away from home, but a world away in climate. It was chilly. Very chilly. But so beautiful. Canberra, you really ‘do’ Autumn well.

We all got to choose some funs things we’d like to do.

The kids chose Questacon (science centre with a lot of interactive and fun ways to learnt about science).

FlyBoy chose the War Memorial with all of its Military history and of course, plenty of old airplanes.

And me? Well I was thinking of going to the local quilt show, but after a lot of complaining from the cheap seats in the back of the car, I chose… Costco… and scored myself a 1.58kg bag of Reese’s peanut butter cups.

  1. Canberra DOES do Autumn well! We go quite regularly as my mum is there and it's so nice. I forget it's Autumn where I live as there aren't may colourful leaves on the ground.
    I still have a bag of those peanut butter cups from one of our first trips to Costco. Love that place.

  2. Wonderful photos of Canberra. The autumn colours are lovely aren't they. A big bag of peanut butter cups or a quilt show, now that is a hard choice, lucky you had some help from the back seat to decide.

  3. I haven't been to Canberra in years but would love to go to the War Memorial one day. I love the photo of the swans amongst the trees.

  6. What a fun looking weekend. How rude that the 'cheap seats' objected to a quilt show. I hope they enjoyed costco too.
