Things to do in Canberra
A visit to Australia’s capital is a must for anyone interested in the story of Australia, its history and of course its politics. Canberra is home to around 400,000 people and is a completely plannend city in that when the land was picked as the site for the capital a complete blueprint for the city existed before anything was constructed. Canberra also has a lot of natural beauty and is otherwise known as the bush capital.
A great place to start your visit to Canberra is at Parliament House. It’s the focal point of Canberra and offers a unique look into the political machine of Australia. Less than a 5 min drive from anywhere in the city Parliament House is open from 9am – 5pm daily, is free and has tours available at 10am, 1pm and 3pm. If you visit on sitting days you can even watch the pollies go at it during Question Time at 2pm.
For a stunning view and to get the birds-eye perspective of Canberra head up to the Mount Ainslie Look-out. Only a 5 minute drive from the CBD the look-out has breathtaking views, is free and often better received than the Telstra Tower (another way to view Canberra from above). You can also drive right to the top!
For a view that requires some physical activity head to the Booroomba Rocks Walk 20 minutes southwest of Canberra. The drive there is beautiful and meanders through the lush Namadgi National Park. From the car park the walk to the summit takes around 40 minutes and is rated as moderate in difficulty with a couple of fairly steep points. Be on the look-out for the abundant wildlife that lives in the surrounding bush. Once at the top there is a sheer cliff with amazing views back towards Canberra.
You’ll be able to make the most of your trip to Canberra with the autonomy and flexibility of a rental car. Get a great deal on Canberra car hire – we make it easy.
