Canberra, designed in 1908 to be the financial and political hub of Australia, is quickly outgrowing its bureaucratic past and becoming a testament to Australian culture. Fine dining and drinking opportunities sit comfortably alongside our national culture and history icons, including the National Gallery, National Library and National Museum. For those who don't mind a bit of politics mixed in with their holiday, a visit to the Museum of Australian Democracy is a must, as is a tour of Parliament House (keep and eye out for the PM!)
Outside of Canberra, visitors can wander back through Australian history with a tour of historic towns and homesteads that lie sprinkled throughout the jagged ranges and grey-green leaves of the Australian bushland. Natural parks offer bushwalking tracks of all levels, with opportunities for and animal-spotting and viewing Indigenous rock art along the way.
The ACT is a place where quiet sophistication blends seamlessly with the striking outback, creating a unique compilation of Australian life and culture – it's a one-of-a-kind destination for one-of-a-kind holidays – there's nothing stopping you!
