The Australian War Memorial serves as a memorial, museum, art gallery and keeper of memories of Australian armed conflict involvement. The collection includes everything from military aircraft and tanks to the poignant personal possessions of POWs and love letters home
We then took a few days to explore the beautiful Blue Mountains on our way back to Sydney. The blue haze created by the transpiration from the Eucalyptus trees coupled with fantastic rocky escarpments create the most stunning scenery. We hiked to waterfalls, took scary ex-mine train rides down 40 degree inclines along the rock face and took a cable car ride across to the Three Sisters. We could have easily stayed here for a few days longer - thankfully we have New Zealand as our next stop!
