We decided to go to Canberra for the weekend. I was supposed to be working, with a new shop fitout to supervise, and our plan was to see “Floriade”.
We got sidetracked and spent the Saturday at the new and the old parliament houses.
What a wonderful experience. We had a private tour of the 17 private courtyards in the new parliament house, then went on the usual tour of the public parts of the building.
Someone mentioned that the old parliament house is now a museum of Australian democracy, and ended up spending the rest of the day there.
A great way to spend a day in Canberra. Whilst we never to got to Floriade, we did see lots of gardens, though.
