    There's a tip about skippong the tour and wandering yourself. While I agree, if you manage both it's even better. Two different experiences, with their own benefits.

    Parking is free if you drive.The last tour ends at 3 pm but check website for change of times. The one not to miss is the "last post ceremony" time is 1655hrs. You get to learn a bit the Anzac spirit.

    Allow lots of time! 2 hours... not enough. Stay for the 5pm ceremony, it's very moving and you will hear a story about one of our amazing service men or women, volunteers from defence read them out.

    Skip the tour. Watch the shows. There's one every hour at the hour. Spare 3 hours minimum to truly enjoy it. Catch the closing ceremony at 5pm.
