Review a long overnight in Canberra

Jump to last reply

Hi, all.

I'm spending 12 days in Australia, and I could really use some itinerary review and thoughts, please. I'm going to break them up into sections.

Flying from Melbourne to Canberra, arriving on a Tuesday at 9:35 am, departing Wednesday at like 7:30 pm.

Tuesday:
- perhaps take taxi to Park Hyatt Canberra? The Airliner bus just seems inconvenient for this hotel. Or maybe I can spare the extra time and just connect on another bus. I'll hardly have any luggage
- National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery. Lunch in one of those places.
- High Court
- Tour of Parliament House at 3 pm
- Museum of Democracy
- Head back to Park Hyatt, enjoy lounge snacks

Any idea about dinner? There are virtually no dinner restaurants nearby in walking distance as far as I can see, and Waters' Edge is a bit too pricey

Wednesday:

- cab to Telstra Tower 9 am
- Botanic Gardens
- walk to Civic Square
- quick bite
- walk to War Memorial and Anzac Parade
- cab from somewhere to National Museum Australia (2 until closing?)
- cab (or maybe just walk) back to Hyatt, and depending on energy and timing, cab or Airliner bus back to Airport for 7:35 flight.
(how much time to allot for check-in? any options for dinner?)

Any way to avoid all the cabbing on Wednesday? Could get expensive
