The small-yet-mighty capital of Canberra is a city that punches far above its weight. Well-known museums and historical sites are just the beginning. Dig a little deeper to find bustling brewpubs, hidden gems, quiet nature and family-friendly attractions. Head just outside the city to relax and unwind in a scenic cool-climate wine region that produces some stellar drops.

Maybe you need a break after competing. Within 35 minutes’ drive of the city, Canberra’s wine region boasts 140 vineyards including 40 wineries. A little closer to home Canberra’s CBD is a foodie’s paradise. Whether you’re after family-friendly restaurants, sweet delights, cosy local cafes, exceptional coffee or fine dining, Canberra has a place for everyone.

We’re so lucky to be visiting Canberra during the world-renowned flower festival, Floriade.
