While we were there we did the tourist thing and headed to Canberra to check out Cockington Green and Questacon. Zane and Lily loved the train ride at Cockington Green and being able to operate the trains and other interactive models. Zane made the trains go around and around for ages, Lily wasn't quite so keen but she had barely slept the night before.
I loved all the miniature houses, I hadn't been to Cockington Green since I was a kid, and can't really remember it that well. These were my favourites:
Very cute little church with bells playing for the wedding.
Not sure what this one was of, it's not in my guide book, but it was in the international section....
And lastly St Andres Cathdral in the Ukraine
Oh and there was this sign which gave me quite a giggle at the train station:
Sunday we went to Questacon. This was pretty amazing, lots of buttons to press and things to do and see. Zane & Lily both loved the Mini Q under 6 area - heaps to do here:
Lily didn't want to leave and chucked a tanty as only an almost 4 year old can. They both had a great time on the rollercaster simulator, Zane had 3 goes in a row!! His favourite thing was apparently the flight simulator, he enjoyed crashing the plane. No photos of that as Lily and I were back in her favourite area - the Mini Q's playing construction workers.
We needed more time to see it all, but I suspect we will be down there again soon.
