Canberra

The Ultimate Guide

The underrated capital city of Australia.


Nicknamed the "bush capital", Canberra is more than the home to Australia's Parliament. Although small, it's quickly building itself into a capital of culture with its wealth of museums often attracting world-class exhibitions and its grounds welcoming world-renowned festivals, such as the annual flower festival, Floriade.

Canberra is also a gateway to outdoor activities such as skiing and snowboarding in the Snowy Mountains or truffle hunting on the northern outskirts of the city.

Flights depart for Canberra daily from major Australian cities. If you're travelling from Sydney, it has all the makings of an ideal day trip, being only a 3.5 hours drive each way.
