After a long, long, very long flight we finally arrived at Sydney. For the first time down under, what a thrill. While the wheels of the 747’s main landing gear touched the ground, I silently whistled the Men at work song ‘Land down under’. Unfortunately we couldn’t spend too much time in Sydney because we had to go to Canberra. After a good breakfast and a couple of espressos we picked up our car. We decided to take the Remembrance Driveway which starts in Macquarie Place, Sydney and ends at the Australian War Memorial & Remembrance Park in Canberra. The Remembrance Driveway is a system of memorial parks, rest areas etc. to honour those who served in the Australian Defence Forces and those who are still continue to serve around the world. The rest areas and memorial parks are named after the Australian World War II and Vietnam War Victoria Cross recipients. More information about these Victoria Cross recipients can be found in the Australian War Memorial museum. If you are not in a hurry, you can take the tourist routes you will see from time to time. These routes will bring you into historical towns like Goulburn and Berrima. It’s approximately a 4 to 5 hour drive from Sydney to Canberra. It took us 7 hours, but I have to say we stopped almost for every photo spot. The results of this photo safari are included.
