    We enjoyed walking down Anzac Parade in Canberra and stopping to see the many Memorials, thanks to all the Australians who served in the Vietnam campaign:O)  more »

    .....for all the fallen. All along this street you can see short memorials as you progress up the hill. Walk it....it's worth it.  more »

    This is not a traditional monument. Very modern and stylish. It has etched pictures, raw concrete blocks, and feels like taking off being dispatched by helicopter.

Where to stay in Canberra

To stay comfortably near most main attractions in Canberra, choose a hotel in the city's central district. If you're a bit more budget-minded, look for a guesthouse in a neighborhood farther away from the city center. Residential areas offer more parking and quieter rooms at a fraction of the price charged by big-name centrally located hotels. Rental apartments spread across Canberra serve as another cozy option and offer lodgings ranging from simply furnished to luxurious five-star properties.
