A holiday in the capital territory of Australia is a quintessential Aussie experience – everyone has to do it at least once in their lifetime. The capital city of Canberra is far more than just a haven for public servants, but a city rich in beauty, culture and Australian history that is begging to be explored. Thanks to the transient nature of the city, the nightlife is also pretty pumping with pubs and clubs open late, frequently and usually with something planned for every night of the week for those who are looking to unwind after work.
Landmark attractions include Parliament House, which will firstly blow you away thanks to its unique design and construction, but also holds the keys to the country within its walls. You can choose to sit in on parliament in the public gallery to really immerse yourself in the action. The National War Memorial is another must-see and tables the chronicles of soldiers who have fought for our country since its Federation. Some of the memorial shows are quite haunting and it’s not unusual for visitors to feel overcome with emotion as they tour the halls. The National Gallery of Australia is a useful way to spend the afternoon and boasts some terrific international gallery pieces that never disappoint.
You should also skip over to Questcon for your fill of scientific education. Questacon is a super-interactive space and it certainly does make science fun for all. In terms of open spaces, Canberra has plenty of places for nature lovers to congregate, such as Mount Ainsley, Lake Burley Griffin and counless walking trails that dot the city’s perimeter. Don’t forget to take your winter warmers, it can be cold in Canberra even in the midst of summer and you will rarely ever notice any humidity.
