Day 1: Sydney to Canberra (286km or 317km)
There is a choice of two driving routes today. The shorter one takes you directly to Canberra via the highway. The more scenic but slightly longer route takes you through the Royal National Park and onto the Grand Pacific Drive with spectacular coastal scenery. Canberra is situated in the Australian Capital Territory and home to many galleries, museums and the artificially created Lake Burley Griffin.
