From hipster bars to technicolour events, immersive exhibitions to adrenaline fuelled mountain bike riding, Canberra continually surprises with new events, attractions and experiences.
We are a foodie’s paradise
with a truly eclectic mix of dining styles, cuisines and home grown produce such as cool-climate wines, truffles and smoked meats. One moment you might find yourself sampling artisan cheeses at a providores market stall, the next sitting down to a 7 course degustation dinner at an award-winning restaurant.
Culture buffs are also well catered for here. As home to the Australian National Collection, you can explore significant culture, art and history throughout our iconic museums, galleries and archives, along with regular blockbuster exhibitions and experiences.
Every year our calendar of events increases with new and exciting additions, along with our existing annual crowd pleasers such as Floriade
, the Canberra Balloon Spectacular
and the after-dark celebration of Enlighten
Built around lakes and rivers and nestled in the midst of pristine bushland, the great outdoors takes on a new meaning. Here you can take the kids tobogganing at Corin Forest Snow resort, shred up some single trails at Mount Stromlo or kayak on Lake Burley Griffin.
And at the end of a full day, you can choose to lay your hat at anyone of our accommodation options ranging from luxury hotels and self-contained apartments to hostels, camping sites, rural properties, or even a room right next to some welcoming zoo animals
