Sydney to Canberra

Sydney to Canberra Sydney to Canberra
I arrived back in Sydney after 6 PM on a Sunday, and prepared to sleep in my pre-paid room in the Grand Hotel. However, as the hotel was also a pub, they were required to lock the doors and not let anyone in. Only guests with their own keys could let themselves in, but I wasn't allowed to get to the reception desk to get my key, as that was in the bar. After using all my change in a payphone to call the concierge, receptionist, night attendant, call centre, and janitor, the OWNER drove over to the hotel in his Mercedes to give me a key - but said that I couldn't tell anyone that he had done so or he'd get in trouble. Weird Australian laws!

The next day, I got on a bus and got to see a good chunk of the landscape on my way to Canberra, in the Australian Capital Territory.
