Things To Do In Canberra

Things To Do In Canberra

It may be that time of the year again, when you decide to do some travelling. Why not make a trip down to Canberra, if you haven’t been here before? It is the largest city that’s situated within Australia, and because of its size, I’m sure that you’ll run out of things to do, see and experience.

Places to visit

Commonwealth ParkIf you happen to love nature and a walk in the park, you might want to head down to Commonwealth Park. It is located towards the northern side of Lake Burley Griffin. A famous British landscape artist named Dame Sylvia Crowe designed the Gardens during the year of 1964 (the lake was also filled around this time). I’d suggest you to try walking along the walk-able trails and observe the sculptures.

For some, it may be your first time here in Canberra, and perhaps you may want to find out more about the nation and people of Australia, at the same time. To do so, you can head down to The National Museum of Australia – which focuses to teach you on topics that cover various Indigenous cultures and histories.

Kids are going to love this, bring them down to Questacon the nation’s major Science and Technology Centre. Without going into the intricacies of Science itself, I believed kids themselves are naturally pulled towards this interesting subject.

Finding accommodation

On average, hotel ratings start from at least 3 stars onwards to the maximum amount of 5 stars. If you happen to be quite particular on overseas accommodations, you need not worry about anything here in Canberra. Whether you’re staying alone or require a suitable place for a family stay, there are many options you can choose from.

Eating out

Well, it is never a good feeling to walk around with an empty stomach, right? Don’t worry, Canberra has a wide range of culinary delights to choose from, it is in fact so wide that I can’t really narrow down one as your taste might differ. On the day itself, ask around for recommendations that are according to your preference. Does Thai food at Woolley Street sound enticing enough?

Travelling around Canberra

CanberraNavigating around a foreign town may seem intimidating at first, but by considering to hire some form of chartered transport service, you can save yourself from a lot of effort. If you’re travelling in a group, you may want to try starting from a minibus, and a bigger coach if necessary.
