Canberra

Canberra

Just recently we left Canberra, where we replaced the Radiator Header Tank for the 3rd time! Fortunately it has worked perfectly since then.

In the time that the radiator was getting fixed, we went to the Royal Australian Mint and the New Parliament House. They were both really cool!

At the RaMint ( Royal Australian Mint ), we learnt about the different currencies that came to Australia, how the first coins to come to Australia were completely by accident, the different designs for the first coins with the Queen’s head on them and why the $2 dollar coin being smaller than the first was completely an accident. I also got some cool coins and I got to mint a $1 coin myself! Website – https://www.ramint.gov.au

At Parliament House, it wasn’t as exciting as RaMint. We had a look around at all the paintings of previous ministers and the Queen and even watched the Senate in action, but it wasn’t very fun. My only regret is about not staying in the Senate long enought to hear someone say to another ‘I really would like to fart in your face right now!’ Website – http://www.aph.gov.au/

We also had a look at the Telstra Tower ( not worth it )

I really enjoyed coming to Canberra!
