There is no other city in Australia that can exemplify the country's place in the global society like Canberra. Melbourne was replaced by Canberra as Australia's capital in 1913, and the city was masterfully designed according to a stringent plan. The city is home to numerous attractions, each contributing a piece to the story of this magnificent nation. It is also home to numerous national monuments and institutions, some of which are designed to be symbols of architectural poetry. Canberra hosts museums, galleries, hotels and overlooks the shores of Lake Burley.

  • Stop over at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra and get to see the priceless artistic treasures; the museum features a diverse collection with items varying from classic cars to historical paintings.
  • Enjoy a tour of the Australian War Memorial; the tours are free and last about 90 minutes, taking visitors through an emotional journey of reminiscence and a history of Australia.
  • Travellers should also visit Canberra's Big Splash Waterpark on Catchpole Street, which offers guests 5 heated pools and 8 thrilling waterslides; it is the only one of its kind in the city.

Travelling to Canberra is simple. The city is serviced by Canberra International Airport, a major transit hub that is serviced by global carriers. Upon arrival at the airport, the city centre is just 9 kilometres away. Travellers should use the bus terminal at Catalina, which is located just outside the airport. Airport shuttles are also available during peak travel times that may take visitors to the city centre. The city is serviced by local ACTION buses, which provide routes to most local attractions. Cycling is popular within the city, and bicycles are available for rent

Canberra is a ghost town. If you want to go for a getaway to a place that is social and exciting then stay away from Canberra. The food however was great. The cafes ONA Coffee House Cafe and Mocan and Green Gout Cafe are well worth the visit, with...

We used taxis between sights which became expensive with a $5 flagfall and an extra $3 to be dropped off in the Parliament House carpark and then another $3 when we left. I'm sure the taxis aren't ther for longer than the initial payment for 2...
