Canberra (June 2018)

Perhaps the theme of my 2018 will be Canberra. Or, at least, the ACT.

For the second time this year, I spent a weekend in the Territory, exploring in and around our nation’s capital. This time, I went down by train with my three best friends: Nathan, Trev and Kat, taking advantage of the three-day Queen’s Birthday weekend.
