THE MUSEUM OF AUSTRALIAN DEMOCRACY
is situated in the Old Parliament House.
We did drive to the Old Parliament House on that Friday morning after we had returned from our walk to Manuka. I wrote about this walk in my previous post.You can go back to it here:
Going for a Walk to Manuka
We saw in the museum interesting historical things.
Buses did bring a lot of visitors to the museum.
1215 was the year when the MAGNA CARTA was first drafted.
At lunchtime we drove to this tavern, Wig & Pen, to have one of their delicious beers and some lunch.
Bike riding is quite popular in Canberra.
Our chosen beer was Imperial Russian (like a very strong Guinness),. and we were warned it had very much alcohol in it!
While waiting for our meal I had a look in this very interesting magazine about beer brewing:
Peter is happy with his meal.
I liked my spicy vegetarian meal. However it turned out, I had to leave some of it. It was just too much!
In my first post about our visit to Canberra
Uta’s Diary, August 2016
I mentioned that on Saturday, the 27th of August, we went to the Telstra Tower and later on to the National Museum.
At nighttime of that same Saturday, which was our last day in Canberra, the Museum of Australian Democracy presented
THE HANSARD MONOLOGUES (Age of Entitlement) and we had tickets for this very interesting show. As I said before, the Museum of Australian Democracy is in the Old Parliament House.

We departed Canberra on Sunday, the 28th of August. Our first stop was Goulburn where we had some coffee and cake in a building from 1889.
Then, we drove on to Bowral and had a lovely lunch there with our friends G and H.
Driving home we went down MacQuarie Pass with some pies from the Robertson Pie Shop.
