We will be visiting the National Zoo & Aquarium. And not just visiting, our package includes two hands on experiences at the zoo. Meet the giraffes and have the opportunity to hand feed them some of their favourite snacks and get amongst the cheeky meerkats for a pat and an offer of a snack too. We will be making the most of our zoo visit and checking out the daily zoo keeper activities. They are a great opportunity to see animals in action. We will also enjoy a yummy lunch at the zoo’s café. There is so much to see and do at Canberra Zoo!
For the science buffs out here, Questacon is a must! With plenty of interactive displays, things to create and discover. There are heaps of fun and interesting presentations and shows to enjoy. Another places on our to do list are Cockington Green and The Royal Canberra Mint. At Cockington Green we will venture into the delightful and fascinating display of meticulously handcrafted miniature buildings from around the world. Set within beautifully landscaped gardens, complete the experience with a ride on the miniature steam train or view the 34 room dolls house! Then we will enjoy lunch and possibly some homemade scones in the Garden Cafe. There is something for everyone at Cockington Green Gardens. If you’ve never been to the mint and seen money being made, now is your chance! We will receive a guided tour of the mint. Our guide will show us a short DVD about how coins are made then help us discover some interesting facts about the history of coins in Australia. We'll learn about how coins are designed before looking out into the factory where they are made.
With so much to see and do in Canberra we are sure you’ll have a fantastic time exploring Australia’s capital with us.
