(via Canberra)

Our first stop today is the capital city of Australia, Canberra - home of the Australian Federal Government. There is more to Canberra than you think! We take a tour through Parliament House and a visit to the Australian War Memorial before we enjoy views from the city's high point and drive by some of the foreign embassies. After lunch in the central retail area, we tackle the Monaro plains, learn of the hardships and international relations formed by the areas giant Snowy Mountain Hydro Scheme. We stay overnight in the heart of the Snowy Mountains. (D)

If weather permits, spend the morning climbing to the top of Australia's tallest peak - Mt Kosciuszko. At 2228 metres it is an easy grade hike from the top of the Crakenback Express chairlift. Later in the afternoon we turn south and take an afternoon drive across the famous Snowy River country and cross the border into Victoria. Tonight, we enjoy a night on the edge of a stunning coastal lake. (BD)

(via Wilsons Promontory)

With Bass Strait by our side, we skirt the north eastern coast of Victoria and head to the southern most national park of the Australian mainland - Wilsons Promontory. You may be able to take your Aussie 'Coat of Arms' photo with a chance of seeing kangaroos and emus together on the vast grasslands. A hike up and along the granite leads us to an area perfect for taking in the beautiful views of the surrounding coastline. With the bright lights and lively buzz of Melbourne in our sights we dodge the trams and navigate the city streets for our central drop off. (B)
