Canberra School Excursion Accommodation

Popular destinations for school excursions include Parliament House – which sees more than 100,000 student visitors annually – Questacon, Royal Australian Mint, National Museum of Australia, Australian War Memorial, Lake Burley Griffin, National Portrait Gallery, and many more attractions such as zoos, aquariums, gardens, monuments and national parks.
