Australian War Memorial

The Australian War Memorial is the national capital icon and is considered one of the nation’s best. The Australian War Memorial was opened in 1941. It is a collection of historical information, memorabilia, paintings reflecting to Australian men and women involvement in world war conflict.

New Parliament House

At 81metres high, the flagpole on New Parliament House is one of the world’s largest stainless steel structures. The sheer size of it is not easily appreciated from a distance, but get up close and it becomes more obvious. Although security now precludes going to the top of the grassed roof of the building, you will still be able to get sufficiently close to appreciate it fully. […]

Parks /Gardens / Lakes

An annual flower display of truly international standards. If you are in town during Floriade you should not miss it though it is probably better to say if you are in town when it’s on you won’t miss it as, chances are, that will be the reason you are in town! […]

Galleries / Museums

A great place to get your bearings and learn something of the story of the national capital through a combination of audio-visual displays, films, photographs and artifacts prior to going out and exploring. The Canberra “Sound and Light Show” with its scale model of central Canberra gives an excellent overview of the city’s layout and the location of all the main tourist sites. Also look out though the windows for an excellent view of the central basin of Lake Burley Griffin. […]

The Telstra Tower / Black Mountain

Probably the most visited (over 430,000 visitors per annum) of the three main “peaks” in Canberra. The other two being Mount Ainslie and Red Hill Lookouts. It is the only one of the three that charges an admission fee. Given vegetation around the base of the tower you will see nothing unless you pay and go up the tower. […]

Cockington Green

This miniature English village is a delight for everybody who visits. All made to such detail, even the height of the shrubs are made miniature. As you wander around beside each little area, is signage about that particular village, I am sure if you are from England or have visited, you would be able to compare. It is very well done, with fine little details.

Spring is the prettiest time to visit, but it is nice at any time of the year. You can get married in this beautiful setting as well.

I walked around twice as it was so nice, and on the second time, I found areas which I had missed the 1st time.

It’s only 15minutes from Canberra central. […]

Old Parliament House

The building was designed by John Smith Murdoch and a team of assistants, and intended to be a ‘provisional’ building, until a permanant building could be constructed. The design extended from the building to include its gardens, décor and furnishings. The building is in the Simplified or “Stripped” Classical Style, commonly used for Australian government buildings constructed in Canberra during the 1920s and 1930s. […]

Outdoor Adventure

Every year in March/April Canberra hosts a balloon spectacular (formally festival). For a couple of weeks up to 50 balloons gather together each morning on the lawns of Old Parliament House. The balloons, which come in all colours, shapes and sizes start inflating just after 6am and take to the skies between 6.30 and 7.00. Get these in time to see them inflating and gently drifting skywards, a truly amazing and surreal sight. […]
