From its familiar symbols of Australian nationhood to its regional wineries and historic townships, Canberra has something special to offer every visitor
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 centres 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 Kamberra or ‘meeting place’.
