Begin your day in Canberra with convenient pickup at your hotel, where you'll board a climate-controlled coach for the 3-hour ride to Canberra. About halfway there, stop in the charming town of Sutton Forest for a quick break. Enjoy the fact that you're not driving or navigating and save your attention for Australia's capital city.
Once in Canberra, you'll have plenty of energy to explore highlights, such as the Australian War Memorial, National Art Gallery or National Museum of Australia (depending on the exhibit), and a private guided tour of Parliament House.
On the way back to Sydney, make a quick stop at Mount Ainslie for landscape photos of the city, make a dinner stop (own expense) and enjoy drop-off back at your hotel.
