Canberra has more for families than you think

If you’re after something different, take a tour to Australia’s capital city? Surprisingly, there’s so much to see and do at this diverse location.

Canberra is Australia’s capital city and similar to The Truman Show, it is custom-built. Canberra has a varying range of museums and attractions you would hope from any capital city, but they are all excellent. It also has an enticing blend of indoor and outdoor attractions that are bound to suit everyone in the family.

City life
If you are into food, then Canberra offers an array of stylish restaurants, bars, boutiques and shops where you can sample local delicacies and produce. You wouldn’t have thought so, but Canberra is rumoured to have the most restaurants per capita than any other Australian city, so you certainly won’t be stuck for choice! Perhaps the public servants eat out a lot?

Museum lovers will be delighted by the choices on offer in Canberra. Get up close and personal with prehistoric creatures at the National Dinosaur Museum or visit Canberra Museum and Gallery for visual arts and social history.

If you’re children, like most, are into science, then harness those thoughts and visit Questacon – a Science Centre like no other in Australia. You could look at a 3infun ticket that gives you entry to Questacon, the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and Cockington Green all for one discounted price.

Further afield

If you like to get out and about when on holiday, Canberra holds an array of outdoor options. The Australian Alps National Parks, Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and the Snowy Mountains are all within easy driving distance from Canberra. You’re able to explore cycle paths, hiking trails, outdoor sports and an abundance of flora and fauna.
