Canberra – Day 3

Our final day in Canberra began early with a cabin clean up and packing the bus ready for home. Our first stop for the day was to Questacon. This was definitely a highlight of the whole trip – an amazing building with so many fun and exciting activities to offer – we could have easily spent the whole day there.

Next we headed to the Electoral Education Centre at Old Parliament House, where students participated in some hands-on and interactive tasks about voting and the electoral system. We even conducted our own little election.

Our final visit was to the National Art Gallery. We were taken on a tour of this beautiful gallery and learnt about some of the amazing artworks. A highlight was seeing Jackson Pollock’s Blue Poles.
After our Macca’s dinner stop it was full steam ahead to Tighes Hill! As you can imagine, by the time 9pm came we were all completely exhausted. Well done to everyone for making this excursion so much fun and such a success. Enjoy the rest of the holidays and see you in Term 4!
