A planned city with streets laid out in elaborate, geometric patterns and founded specifically to serve as the capital of the emerging Australian state, Canberra has a self-sufficient atmosphere.
Kick off your visit on the 23rd (Wed): get engrossed in the history at Australian War Memorial, then don't miss a visit to Mount Ainslie Lookout, then explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Australia, and finally get a sense of history and politics at Parliament of Australia.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Canberra International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 35°C in January, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
