Holidays To Canberra

Looking for a capital holiday? Canberra is the home of Australia’s Parliament, and if you’re interested in politics, you can’t miss a visit to Parliament House. 
Sit in on “question time”, see the Magna Carta with your own eyes and walk around Lake Burley Griffin.  If you can’t even remember who Australia’s current prime minister is, there are plenty of other things to do in Canberra. Unique museums and art galleries, botanic gardens, trendy bars and a wine region all help make for a tops holiday in Canberra. Book your Canberra holiday package with us and you’ll find you don’t have to be a politician to have a party here. 

History
For 21,000 years, Canberra was home to the Ngunnawal people. After Federation in 1901, it was chosen to be Australia’s capital. An international competition was held to design the city, and American architect Walter Burley Griffin won.  The first Commonwealth Parliament House opened in 1927. In 1989, the ACT became a self-governing territory. 

Things to do
If you’ve ever wondered what goes on in the halls of Parliament House, here is your chance to unravel the mystery. See the House of Representatives and the Senate chambers on a variety of tours and, on days when the Parliament in sitting, combine your tour With Question Time! Also at the House, you can see the Magna Carta up close (it’s the document that established the idea of everyone being equal under the law), walk up to the grass roof and see the 81-metre high flag mast, and cycle the shores of Lake Burley Griffin (named after Walter himself). 

Canberra is the home of the country’s largest art museum: the National Gallery of Australia.  This gallery has more than 160,000 permanent works of art, including Aboriginal, Asian, American and European, as well as unique and arty events. There are plenty of attractions in Canberra for science lovers too: Questacon, the national science and technology centre; the Canberra Space Centre and the National Dinosaur Museum. If you’re interested in history, visit the Australian War Memorial to pay your respects, take a tour and wander the memorial grounds. 

Canberra has something to satisfy all you nature lovers too. The Australian National Botanic Gardens has a diverse selection of Australian plants in a tranquil bush setting. On the western shore of Lake Burley Griffin, the National Arboretum features rare and famous tree types from around the world. 

And if you just can’t get enough flowers in your life, Floriade is a spectacular celebration of flowers that happens every spring. One million flowers bloom in bright colours and detailed patterns in Canberra’s Commonwealth Park, and entry is free. Floriade’s Nightfest program brings DJs, comedians and light shows to the park at night. 

Shopping and dining
Want some wine with that lunch? From its home at the foot of the Brindabella Mountains, the Canberra District wine region has more than 140 vineyards. Combine Canberra wine with local produce at a winery or check out one of Canberra’s many excellent restaurants, offering everything from fine dining to French and Italian. To get your shopping kicks, head to Civic’s the Canberra Centre.
