Carved out of New South Wales as an independent territory for the sole purpose of governing a nation, Australian Capital Territory is much smaller than the other states. But that doesn’t mean it’s not worth a visit. In fact, if you’re Australian, a history buff, or just want to check out some of the nation’s best protected green spaces, then ACT is where it’s all at.
As the seat of the Australian government, Canberra is the most influential city in the country. Here’s where politicians, lobbyists and officials steer the nation. Can you feel the power coursing through you? If not, don’t worry. A visit to a few national monuments, museums and government buildings should do the trick.
While there’s plenty of green space right in the city, the ACT’s hinterlands are also worth checking out. Hike, cycle and explore to your heart’s content. Pack your tiny Australian flags and your hiking boots—you’ll need them both for our ACT holiday packages! Stuff to Do
Like many capital cities, Canberra was planned to have all roads lead to Capital Hill. Head there to explore Australia’s history and government, or cross the Molonglo River where it bursts into Lake Burley Griffin. Either way, this city is the heart of ACT holidays.
Check out the ACT’s long list of museums and monuments, such as the Canberra Museum and Gallery, the Australian War Memorial and the National Museum of Australia. Learn how the city was planned and built at the National Capital Exhibition, or catch a flick at the National Film and Sound Archive.
When you’re ready to head out, check out our Canberra car hire options and take a scenic drive to the southern regions of ACT. City Life
If Capital Hill is where all the governing action is, then north of the lake is where all those politicians spend their private lives. Join them at the many markets around the city, such as the Jamison Market for fresh produce, or the Gorman House Market for antiques and crafts.
Does shopping make you hungry? Us too! Luckily our ACT packages bring you to plenty of grub to chow down on. Check out national and international fare at the collection of restaurants around Central Canberra, just north of City West Park.
Need a drink? Head to the bars and clubs on Bunda Street. Where to Visit
Need to get out of the city? No problem! Holidays to ACT are the perfect opportunity to hit the slopes of Corin Forest in a toboggan. Go hiking or camping in the large Bimberi Nature Reserve, or hit the Molonglo Nature Reserve with a kayak.
