Back to Questacon today. We arrived just on opening so it was nice and quiet and the girls were able to spend time doing what they wanted. Christy & Amy both attempted to do the free fall but chickened out (even though they both did it when they were younger).
We finished our visit with a science show and a visit to the shop. As we left 3 flighter planes flew overheads on a fly-by for the Anzac parade. It was pretty awesome. Then we stopped at Subway to get to some lunch and headed to Weston Park.
Wish I could eat lunch with a view like this every day.
After eating the girls played while I took some photos.
Canberra in Autumn on sunny days is just magical. I have so many favourite photos.
From here we headed to the Australian Institute of Sport.
Loved the HUGE sculptures out the front.
We went on a guided tour which stated off with the sports play room.
Kevin tried some downhill skiing.
Christy had fun practicing her soccer.
And Kevin & Noel played basketball.
After 30mins here we set off on the tour. The gymnastics room….
the most awesome weights room….
the basketball court where the Junior Australian team (under 18s) were training.
and the main training pool.
On the way back to the car Kevin got stickered.
Upon arrival back at our room we were quite horrified to find the broken glass we had reported still all over the carpet. Tonight we enjoyed leftovers for dinner and wrote a scathing report about our apartments on Trip Advisor. The glass-cleaning incident was the last thing we weren’t happy with so we definitely won’t be staying here again.
