Canberra is Australia’s capital, inland from the country’s southeast coast.
Surrounded by forest, farmland and nature reserves, it earns its nickname, the “Bush Capital.”
The city’s focal point is Lake Burley Griffin, filled with sailboats and kayaks. On the lakeshore is the massive, strikingly modern Parliament House, as well as museums including the National Gallery, known for its indigenous art collections.
Situated just hours away from some of Australia’s most scenic locations, Canberra is the perfect base for enjoying the best the region has to offer. Whether you fancy charming historic towns, picture-perfect beaches, alpine adventures or delectable local produce, Greater Canberra is ideal for those wishing to stay a while longer post-Conference.
