The Belconnen Town Centre is where most of the action happens – a city away from the city! If you love shopping, this is the place to be; the area features a Westfield shopping centre, one of the largest centres in the Australian Capital Territory. Whether it’s fashion, electronics, homewares or everyday essentials you’re after, you’re sure to find it in one of Westfield Belconnen’s 270 stores. You can even catch a film at Hoyts Cinema or bring the kids to the centre’s games arcade, Intencity. The Town Centre is also a great place to go if you love gourmet delights. A wide range of bars and pubs await, as do eateries ranging from fast food to classy, fine dining establishments. Make sure you check out the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets, a building packed with restaurants and shops touting fresh produce and other delicacies – eat them there or bring them home!
You can even pack some of these tasty treats and bring them with you to Lake Ginninderra, one of Canberra’s prime picnic locations. Here, you can admire the views of the shimmering blue lake and the dense forests around it while putting a few snags on the barbie. Also keep an eye out for the birds that call the lake home, such as black swans, moorhens and ducks. And if it’s summer, remember to pack your swimmers and pop in for a dip, or hire a boat and take it out for a cruise.
Of course, Belconnen’s proximity to Canberra also makes it convenient to see the attractions at the nation’s capital. Visit the National Gallery of Australia, the Australian War Memorial or Parliament House – all incredible monuments detailing parts of Australia’s rich and vibrant history. So don’t delay – book your Belconnen accommodation and flight to Canberra today!
