Differences between Sydney and Canberra are stunning, and amazing, and often, simple.
Almost everyone in Canberra knows that where-ever they are, anywhere else in Canberra is about 20 minutes – and certainly no more than 30 minutes – away by car. This is most certainly my experience in traveling from Weston Creek to “near Queanbeyan” every morning and back each evening.
On top of this, it seems to be very unusual for a major road to cross through a school zone. This is lucky, because unlike New South Wales, those school zones are in effect from 8:30 am all the way through to 4:00 pm.
I will be writing a bit more in the coming weeks about the major routes I have used to get around Canberra. Hopefully this will build into something useful as the weeks tick over!
