More than just a political hotspot

It’s the capital city of Australia, the country’s political hub and is often dubbed the destination with the most federal buildings. But never fear, you can actually have a good time in Canberra! There are ample art galleries and museums positioned around large man-made lakes, housing some of the country’s most significant artefacts and pieces of art. Then there are picturesque gardens, expansive parklands and abundant bushwalks to enjoy the great outdoors.

Canberra is the home of our War Memorial, Old and New Parliament House, as well as Questacon and the incredible National Gallery of Australia. But if you need a break from all these cultured activities, then you should head directly to Fyshwick, the porn capital of Australia. If you're here with family, Fyshwick is also the place to pick up some of the only legal fireworks in Australia, just not in summer (bush fire season). For pyromaniacs you should be planning your holidays in Canberra in winter.

Let the autumn colours shine

Canberrans suggest the best time to visit the capital is during autumn when the leaves change colour, the mornings begin with a touch of frost followed by clear skies and the weather is mild, ideal for seeing the sights. Enjoy the visual display of the Hot Air Balloon Festival and the soulful sounds of the National Folk Festival. Breathe in the clean, fresh air as you explore the outdoors before the icy temperatures set in

Summer is the time for speed

If you like the warmth and have a passion for fast action sports, then Canberra during summer is for you. The heated up festivities of Summernats brings together car enthusiasts, rock ‘n’ roll and horsepower heroics. Think burning rubber, tattoos and not a politician in sight! Be sure to book early though, it gets super busy. If leather jackets and the smell of burnt rubber isn’t for you, then Canberra is also one of the leafiest cities in Australia - there's plenty of walks through parkland, around a lake or to a pub.

Also during summer most of the politicians have left so, depending on your love of politics, it often means cheaper rates as the hotels will not be as busy. When booking accommodation in Canberra you'll want to focus on comfort, because this is the easiest city to find your way around, it doesn't really matter where you are. Just remember to book a room with airconditioning if you're travelling in summer.

Canberra as a launch pad

Canberra is also one of the best launch pads for another holiday, to the mountains or beach. In just a couple of hours you could find yourself in mountain bike territory and the Snowy Mountains ski fields. You're also just a quick trip away from the coast and in Bateman's Bay, on the South Coast of NSW, you'll find some of the best fish and chips in the country.
