Canberra’s Civic Merry-Go-Round

posted in: Travelling with kids | 4

I LOVE carousels. Having children was just an excuse to continue riding them without the strange stares from watchful parents. Imagine my delight to discover the Civic Merry-Go-Round in Petrie Plaza in central Canberra. This gorgeous carousel was built in Melbourne in 1914. Its horses (and elephants) were hand carved in Germany, and the brass poles imported from Scotland. This charming ride is for the young and young at heart alike.
