Holiday to see the museums, art galleries, and par
Bicycle paths were excellent and allowed us to visit most of the places we wanted to visit. Car parking was expensive. Traveled by car to Canberra from our home in Bendigo Vic.

Very good accommodation
We upgraded to an apartment when our qdult son decided to stay with us. Full kitchen separate bedroom fold out bed for our son in living room. Very quiet location with shops and restaurants 5 min drive down the road. Needs a bit of sprucing up as a bit dated. Would be happy to stay here again
