Time for reflection...
Now that the family rituals of Easter are out of the way, we can all concentrate on ourselves and be a little self indulgent. The ANZAC Day long weekend, which is only a couple of weeks away, is the perfect time for reflection.
This weekend could be just a mouse click away with the range of B&Bs that are now available on OzShortStay. Travellers will find this site to be unusually quick and very user-friendly. It profiles accommodation around the country, from guesthouses and beach shacks to heritage city pads. Simply visit the web site and select the destination you wish to visit around Australia. OzShortStay will do the work for you, bringing up a comprehensive listing of quality B&B style accommodation.
A visit to Canberra over the Anzac Day long weekend is a must for those who can get away. Canberra, the National Capital of Australia , is host to over 80 Embassies and the Nation's Institutions, all within a few minutes drive from the home stay properties listed on this website.
A must see whilst in Canberra is the newly extended National War Museum. The Australian War Memorial is regarded as one of the most impressive war museums in the world. You can see actual fighter planes, view dioramas of some of the significant battles Australians have fought and spend hours pouring over military memorabilia. Free guided tours are conducted daily between 10am-5pm.
If you make it to Canberra, be sure not to miss the Anzac Day dawn Service in front of the Australian War Memorial at 5:30am and Anzac Day Parade at 10:30am. Visit www.canberratourism.com.au for more information.
Among the properties on OzShortStay is Birch Corner Bed & Breakfast, located only five minutes from the City centre and close proximity to Anzac Parade making it the ideal location. Run by Leon and Kate Norgate, the hosts offer superb hospitality and scrumptious home made meals using local produce. Guests who stay two nights over the Anzac weekend, receive a complimentary dinner. There are four rooms to choose from ranging from only $65/night. For bookings call (02) 6281 4421 or simply click on www.OzShortStay for more details. It is worth getting in quick because B&Bs in Canberra, and elsewhere, are likely to be snapped up over the Anzac Day long weekend.
OzShortStay offers a huge range of mid-week and Anzac Day specials to suit every taste and budget. The site is attracting record numbers and is already one of the most visited accommodation sites in the nation.
