We visited the Glassworks, thinking it might be a glass factory. But it is an old glass foundry that is rented out by artists to create art glass, which is then displayed for sale in the lobby area. Only 2 artists were in the day we visited, so it was a mellow day, but some of the stuff on display was pretty cool.
A vehicle that used to ply the back roads of Australia in days gone by. The mechanic on board lived in this colorful traveling workshop and the truck was saved from the junkyard by someone who actually remembered this thing lumbering into his town. Now it is a front display in the Australian Museum.
The tractor that pulled the above truck when it wasn't under its own power. Quite the eclectic vehicle.
A view from the Australian War Memorial. It is reminiscent of looking down the avenue with the reflecting pools from the Washington Monument in Washington D.C.
We walked all over this territory and toured the Australian Mint. My eyes just aren't able to appreciate the minute differences in the coins that make them so special and rare, but our guide had a great sense of humor so I enjoyed the tour anyway. Guess I'll stick to the plastic paper money.
We stayed a couple of days in our little hideaway park in the middle of the government seat. We left for Sydney, another day's drive and enjoyed the scenery up the back of the Great Dividing Range and along the shore.
