Where to stay in Canberra

Exploring Canberra

Located between the major cities of Sydney and Melbourne, the purpose-built Australian capital, Canberra, is an acquired taste. It gets a bad rap for its somewhat sterile persona, but this centre of government and business is well worth a look for its grand buildings and lovely setting on Lake Burley Griffin.

Canberra has a reputation for being expensive, although its hotels and restaurants are among the best in the country and visitors tend to be of the more discerning type. Everything is planned here, including the artificial lakes and the placement of national monuments, but it’s good for activities and the outdoors. The city is on the doorstep of the Aussie bush of southeast New South Wales.

Sightseeing in Canberra

- Australian War Memorial

This is the top landmark in the Australian capital―a striking, grand structure on Treloar Crescent. It is highly photogenic, with its reflecting pool, parade, and dome, and comes with a good museum. The museum covers the military history of Australia with planes, artillery, and dioramas of famous battles. There’s also a café on site and nice lawns, and the whole place is worthy of at least a few hours. It’s not far from the four-star Mercure Canberra.

- Parliament House

Across the lake from the war memorial and not far from Capital Hill and George and Victoria terraces is the grand former Parliament building. The country was run from here up until the 1980s and its various facets are now home to interesting tourist attractions. Most notable of these attractions is the National Portrait Gallery―a fabulous building with big, bright, and airy exhibits. Visitors can also tour the former Prime Ministerial Quarters and the House of Representatives.

Transportation in Canberra

You can walk between Civic and Capital Hill (across the lake), and the streets of Canberra are well-planned and easy to navigate on foot or by bicycle. ACTION buses take in both of these areas and their circles which radiate out to hotel districts, suburbs, and beyond. Tickets can be purchased as a single, 10 rides, or an all-day pass. Buses run all day and are comfortable.
