After the arrival in Canberra, Dame Patsy and Sir David headed to the National Gallery of Australia to see the exhibition 'Botticelli to Van Gogh' and also toured the galry's sculpture garden.
The official programme started on Day Two with an indigenous Welcome to Country ceremony, a ceremonial welcome and a visit to the National Arboretum, with a State Dinner in the evening.
On Saturday Dame Patsy and Sir David departed for Hobart where they visited MONA- The Museum of Old and New Art and the Australian Antarctic Division. The evening was spent at Hobarts grand Government House, where a roaming supper featuring Tasmanian produce as well as treats from the Government House gardens was staged.
Before travelling back to New Zealand, there was just enough time to take in Government House Hobart's magnificent gardens.
