Home to 357,000 people, Canberra is one of the world’s few planned cities, a city in a park, with a kaleidoscope of colors and experiences turned by the changing seasons. Discover the home of the Australian Story in Canberra, where national attractions and hidden gems deliver an array of unexpected delights. The city’s national museums and attractions hold and share the treasures of our nation.

Immerse yourself in the true nature of the native bushland that cradles the city and reveals unexpected delights among the leafy surrounds, including stylish restaurants, hip bars, boutique shopping, great outdoor fun and a busy calendar of events and festivals. The surrounding region offers more than 30 wineries, historic townships, quiet coastlines, the lush southern highlands and the alpine roof of Australia.

The city offers access to influential national bodies, government contacts and has a wealth of national monuments and attractions which give gala events that extra something.

Beyond Canberra’s more famous attractions the city unfolds into a vibrant mix of restaurants, nightclubs, museums and galleries. Growing urban centers are lined with trendy cafes and boutique shopping, while weekend markets overflow with the freshest regional produce and local wines.

One of Australia’s few planned cities, Canberra is a place where architectural style complements the beauty of the surrounding Australian bush. Located on the ancient lands of the traditional owners, the Ngunnawal people, Canberra is thought to derive its name from the Aboriginal word Canberra or ‘meeting place’.

Relax in modern cafés, experience first-class cuisine at stylish restaurants, dine with a view, or taste award-winning wines and fresh food at a vineyard set amongst gorgeous rural surrounds. Degustation dining and wine matching from sommeliers is becoming an increasing feature of restaurants in Canberra.

Explore Canberra’s many attractions which hold and share the nation’s history. Celebrate Australia’s proud sporting achievements at the Australian Institute of Sport; explore the land, nation and people of Australia at the National Museum of Australia and our unique political history with tours of the old and new Parliament houses; and reflect on stories of bravery and courage at the Australian War Memorial.
