The nation’s capital might lack some of the global star power possessed by neighbours Sydney and Melbourne but Canberra remains a city of historic and cultural significance.
As Australia’s political epicentre, Canberra is home to Parliament House, offers tours ranging from free walk-throughs to viewing question time. However, it’s equally interesting to visit Old Parliament House, now billed as the Museum of Australian Democracy.
Canberra is doing its best to match its food crazed counterparts from Victoria and New South Wales with the NewActon urban precinct. Comprising an assortment of restaurants, bars and cafes, NewActon is one of the nation’s latest culinary hotspots.
The Last Post
At 4:55pm each day, the Australian War Memorial performs the Last Post Ceremony. Commemorating the exploits of over 100,000 Australians that sacrificed their lives during wartime, the experience is truly moving.
Stay the night
Great accommodation is readily available no matter what your fancy. Hotel Hotel is a celebration of contemporary, ground breaking design, while Hotel Kurrajong is the opposite, decorated with black and white historical photographs to reflect Canberra’s traditional heritage.
