On the outskirts of Canberra. This homestead farm comes with an on-site restaurant with a chef who has graced the kitchen of several Michelin star restaurants worldwide, who has settled in Canberra because of his passion for the fantastic culinary potential of truffles. * You can join in the action by going on a truffle hunt in season (June-August) Phone 0400 483 082 Jayson, the farmer, is Canberra born-and-bred, as are the friendly truffle-hunting dogs and pigs that keep him company.

Canberra is renowned for the exceptionally high-quality exhibitions that are attracted to its museums and galleries, many of which are not shown elsewhere in Australia and attract visitors from around the country. The National Museum of Australia is a perfect spot to learn about the history, geography and culture of Australia, as well as many fascinating international exhibits. Art lovers certainly shouldn’t miss the National Gallery of Australia, a world-class facility with a particularly excellent collection of Aboriginal art.

Parliament House is the first thing to come to mind for international visitors and Australians alike: Parliament House has been the hub of the nation’s political action since it opened in 1988, replacing what is now referred to as the Old Parliament House (the home of Australia’s parliament from 1927). This iconic, beautiful building is breathtaking, and its an amazing backdrop for your holiday snaps (especially at sunset). There are tours available every half an hour from 9am until the facility closes 5pm, and it’s a fantastic way to familiarize yourself not only with the building but with the complicated ins-and-outs of Australia’s unique political system.

Formally founded as a city over a century ago, Canberra is far more than the capital of the country; as the eighth-largest city in Australia, its vibrant and interesting in its own right, and has its own unique culture that is quite different from that of its interstate neighbors. You can learn more about Canberra at the Canberra Museum, and about its function as national capital at the National Capital Exhibition. The Australian National University is also a very significant Australian icon, as well as being a gorgeous campus and a great place for a stroll. There’s also plenty of lovely heritage buildings to enjoy in and around Canberra, such as the Lanyon Homestead and Blundells Cottage

Lots of beautiful plants, a rain forest walk, fun park for the kids and season dependent - night open air cinemas. Australia is renowned for its gorgeous flora, especially its wildflowers. The National Botanic Gardens is a fantastic introduction to the beauty of Australian plant life, as well as its versatility and the important role that it has played in traditional culture. The Botanic Gardens are great for a relaxing walk or a picnic, but also a horticulturalist’s dream. There’s even a 45-minute bus tour of the Gardens so that you can learn in depth about the beauty of nature, in air-conditioned comfort.

Just 40km south of Canberra, Namadgi National Park makes for a wonderful day trip to explore regional ACT. You can find stunning Australian fauna including colorful birdlife, rugged granite mountains, and habitat that varies from alpine meadows to lush forests. This Park is also listed on the Australian National Heritage List, as one of eleven protected areas that form the Australian Alps National Parks and Reserves. Australian regional and rural scenery is as diverse as it is beautiful, and while you’re in the area it’s definitely worth seeing this stunning example.

Located to the north-east of central Canberra, within the Canberra Nature Park, Mount Ainslie boasts extraordinary panoramic views of central Canberra, particularly Capital Hill, as well as Black Mountain (another gorgeous lookout, if you’ve got time!) to the West. You’ll find the Mount Ainslie Kokoda summit train, a well-maintained and informatively signposted walking trail behind the Australian War Memorial, to be an excellent and highly educational way to experience the mountain.

The “Jerra” wetlands are right in the heart of Canberra, and a relaxing natural getaway after an exciting day in Capital Hill. Billed as one of the ACT’s best-kept secrets, the wetlands are rich in diverse bird-life (including migratory species from as far away as Japan), lush greenery and beautiful flowers. There’s also often interesting events being held here, including indigenous cultural events. The Wetlands are really quite a treat and should be a must-see on any nature-lover’s itinerary.

If you enjoy buying fresh produce at farmer’s markets, artisan goods at maker’s markets, or just the wonderful bustling small-businesses-of-yore atmosphere that markets provide, then you’ll love the Old Bus Depot Markets and the Capital Region Farmers Markets. They’re both quite easy to get do, and you’ll come home with some of the tastiest fruits and vegetables you’ll find in the country, as well as many handmade crafts as quirky souvenirs to fill up your suitcase with for your friends back home.

Lake Burley Griffin is an artificial lake smack-dab in the centre of Canberra, created in the 1960s. Many of the city’s best-known landmarks are either on the shores of the lake or easily visible from it, and a cruise on the lake is a wonderful way to see the city in a new light and in a tranquil, beautiful setting. There are several cruises available, offering options such as meals, and guides whose fascinating insight into the history of the city will make the experience even more meaningful.

Canberra is home to Australia’s only combined zoo and aquarium facility, and as you’d expect from a zoo located in a national capital city, the National Zoo & Aquarium has gone to great efforts to do the country proud. The ZooVenture tours are particularly fun: you can feed a bear, pat a rhino, hand-feed a giraffe and much more in this 2-hour behind-the-scenes look at the zoo. At only $125, it’s excellent value and an experience to remember. The facility is also home to a luxury safari lodge, Jamala Wildlife Lodge, which offers deluxe accommodation and special safari itineraries for visitors, from one to three nights of exotic, exciting entertainment.

Australia is a famously sports-mad country, and if you’re a sporty type or want to learn about this intrinsic part of Aussie culture, the Australian Institute of Sports should be on your itinerary. This premier sports precinct is one of the capital’s favorite tourist attractions, with international and domestic visitors alike, and the 90-minute tour is a wonderful introduction to Australia’s sporting past, present and future. While you’re at the AIS, challenge yourself with the state-of-the-art interactive sports exhibit, Sportex; it’s unmissable and very fun.
