Australia Day Weekend - Friday traffic, weekend hotels

Jump to last reply

You guys have helped us decide that after Sydney we will head to Canberra on 21 January to see the Space Communications sites, Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, and Namadgi National Park.

We fly home out of SYD Sunday morning, 25 January, so we will miss Australia Day celebrations, but will want to travel on Friday and/or Saturday.

Will there be lots of traffic on Friday afternoon/evening--people into/out of the cities for the holiday weekend? Will tourist destinations like Katoomba and the Blue Mountains be packed, or will there be more people in Canberra and Sydney?

Hotels seem to be available with no minimun stay, but rates in Sydney are higher than the previous week.

If we decide to drive rather than use the train or bus (any comments on Murrays, Greyhound?), we would prefer not to spend our time in traffic jams.
