At War Memorial, you will witness the story of World War 1 and the people who lost their lives in the war of the Commonwealth of Australia. While you wander through the shrine, you will realise the lasting impact that war had on Australian Society.
The New Parliament House is most noteworthy and was designed to represent two Boomerangs and to boost an 81-meter flagpole at the peak.

Here’s my review. I’m not on fb or google plus & trip advisor won’t let me post unless I join. So here it is. I give 5 stars. It was awesome!
Adelaide City Afternoon Tour
This is one of the best tours I’ve been on. Kim was our driver, and he was a wealth of information. As well as the city, we went to the Adelaide Hills, which was breathtaking. We passed a beautiful town called Stirling, but the highlight of the trip was Hahndorf. I was mesmerised by this place. It was absolutely stunning! We spent 1 1/2 hours there and enjoyed a lovely complimentary afternoon tea. We loved Hahndorf so much that we’re going back today by car! It was one of the best days out I’ve ever had. It was fabulous!

We had a great 3 days experience with Loksha Tours arrangement for my family of 3. Right to the dot of being picked up at the hotel and a nice added touch to being sent back after the tour (surprised). Our trip to Ballarat, Yarra Valley/Puffing Billy and The Great Ocean Road was conducted by a safe and well informed Guide/Driver.

The Canberra day tour was awesome, and the entire experience was easy and enjoyable! We had a jam packed day of learning about Australia's capital city, with something for everyone to enjoy. Our tour guide Danny was knowledgeable, friendly, and a pleasure to spend the day with. The van came with free wi-fi, which was nice on the long journey.
