Day trips?

By Kristielee - 4 June 2008 66

Hi All,

As the long weekend is coming up I was thinking of getting out of town for the day.

I am lost to decide on where to go.

Does anyone have any recommendations for places within a few hours drive of Canberra that are worth going for a day or two?

What’s Your opinion?

Go check out Goulburn – they have a gaol, a Dimmey’s and a MacDonalds. Top place. 3:51 pm 04 Jun 08

Ohhhhh… I thought we invaded Iraq to bring liberty and democracy..

Well billions of ameoba laid down their lives for you 150 million years ago so you can enjoy your *freedom* to enjoy a day trip.

Tuggeranong Valley is within reach of current petrol prices, and that’s about as interesting as you can get.

Or, seriously, how about Tidbinbilla / Brindabellas?

With these shocking petrol prices and all, I mean, why isn’t the government doing something about global oil prices?

Isn’t that why we invaded Iraq?

Anyhow, assuming you can afford/morally justify using the petrol, Cowra is quite a pleasant place to visit.

Or try taking the long way to Sydney and back – off the freeway and along the old highway – lots of interesting quite little country towns.

Banks. It might be a bit far for a weekend trip though.

Asking where to go for a daytrip is akin to burping out loud among the starving masses in Zimbabwe. Fricken show off!

Why go as far as Queenbeyan? Fyshwick is closer and you could spend the weekend there. With these shocking petrol prices and all, I mean, why isn’t the government doing something about global oil prices?

It’s not everyone’s cup of Darjeeling, but I like the south coast this time of year. Less people (though more are around on a long weekend), and a day spent by the ocean even at the start of winter beats a lot of days 150km away from it. (Having a little refuge a few kms south of Moruya always helps.)

And on Saturday afternoon I’ll be joining a pack of (Master Batemans) Hash House Harriers, running/walking around Batemans Bay, indulging in a little post-run banter and good-natured personal abuse thence repairing to the club for nosh and drinks. Superb.

A pub/club crawl of Queanbeyan could be pleasant.

LOL – you’re joking?!

Ulladulla/Mollymook – the most beautiful place on the South Coast

Southern Highlands.

Wander around Bowral and surrounding villages. It’s all very quaint and somewhat English. Nice countryside as well.

Bundanoon is a nice place – if you’re staying overnight make sure you check out Glowworm Glen.

With the completion of the various motorways in sydney it’s a pretty easy trip to the Blue Mountains from Canberra these days.

There are lots of nice coastal places that you don’t have to pay top dollar for in the off season – Bannisters at Mollymook is an example.
