Located in Canberra are a lot of Embassies from around the World.

The Embassy Tourist Drive is Tourist Drive 6, which follows a route through the embassies of Canberra.

The route commences at the corner of Adelaide Avenue and National Circuit at Capital Hill.
We just followed the brown tourist drive signs marked with the number 6.
Starting with Parliament House, you will then be led into Yarraluma, one of the more opulent suburbs, where most of the embassies are located.

A lot of them are not much to look at, behind high fences and just blocks of building, but there are some others that are nice, especially the South African Embassy.
Others are the Chinese, American, Papua New Guinea and Indian. There are other nice ones, but I can't remember their names because of lack of photos through nowhere to park your car.

The route then goes up to the Red Hill Lookout, past some more mansions, then heads back to Capital Hill. (well worth a visit to Red Hill, see previous tip)

Its an easy way to see all of them! Quite an interesting tour.

Address: Follow tourist drive 2
