Conferences aren’t all work and no play. After hours you’ll find so much to explore in the capital - so much to keep you and your business colleagues entertained. And it’s all so convenient, with everything within walking distance or only minutes away from the centre of the city.

Be prepared to expect the unexpected when you visit Canberra. Business travellers have endless options for exploring, wining, dining and sightseeing.

World-class dining, iconic national treasures, blockbuster exhibitions, food and wine events, festivals celebrating all seasons, breathtaking adventures and the peace and tranquility of our natural surrounds are all on offer. Your online destination for inspiration is Visit Canberra.

In the meantime, here are some top spots to stimulate the senses.

Award-winning wine region

The Canberra District Wine region is home to 140 cool climate vineyards and more than 33 wineries.

Thes wineries, a 35-minute drive from the capital, produce top drops not found elsewhere. Many also offer venues for events. Take time to explore the tranquil countryside surrounding the ACT. Feast on beautiful smoked goods at Poacher’s Pantry and sip on wines from nearby Wily Trout Vineyard and Clonakilla vineyard.

Chilling Canberra style

After a long day of conferencing, unwind with colleagues or friends while enjoying a drink.

At any one of the capital’s unique bars, centrally located in the city, you can enjoy a whisky at Molly, a cocktail at White Rabbit, a highball at Highball Express, or a tasty brew from Bentspoke Brewing Company microbrewery.
