Canberra is known for museums, childrens museums, nature, wildlife, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take an in-depth tour of Australian War Memorial, look for all kinds of wild species at Floriade, get a sense of history and politics at Royal Australian Mint, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Australia.

San Francisco, USA to Canberra is an approximately 18.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or do a combination of subway and flight. You'll lose 18 hours traveling from San Francisco to Canberra due to the time zone difference.
