Australian Capital Territory

Canberra and its surrounds are rich in choices for families, couples and tour groups. The essence of our way of life is reflected in the ACT's cultural attractions, offering intriguing insight into Australian character and democracy. Galleries, museums, hands-on science centres, exhibitions and monuments vie for your attention. Canberra also has award-winning restaurants, wineries, the Floriade Festival and more than its share of outdoor activities based around the Botanic Gardens, Lake Burley Griffin and landscaped green spaces.

More than our nation's capital, the ACT is the repository of our national treasures. Visitors will be enthralled by the National Museum, National Gallery, War Memorial and festivals like Floriade each Spring and the celebration of all things motoring, the Summernats. Science buffs will enjoy Questacon, the Science and Technology Centre, and then there's Old Parliament House and New Parliament House for insight into the workings of our political past and present. The ACT is also a parkland territory, with ample open spaces for sport, adventure travel, wine tours and out of the ordinary experiences.
