Day 20: Canberra to Braidwood

James and Rachael are back at work today, so we decided to go to the National Museum. We left the free camp early and had breakfast near the museum. We both really loved the Museum. I did the guided tour – well worthwhile for the overview and understanding the concepts they are wanting to portray. It’s way too interesting for me to be able to explain it well to you here. I highly recommend spending a day there. To quote the museum’s blurb, “The National Museum of Australia is a social history museum. We explore the land, nation and people of Australia. We focus on Indigenous histories and cultures, histories of European settlement and our interaction with the environment.” I think you’ll see by the pictures below how true this is.
We had lunch in their cafe (not as good as the Library’s lunch).

This afternoon we’re at Braidwood. We’ve booked in to do a 4WD course tomorrow and they have very kindly allowed us to stay at the property. More about that tomorrow.
