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.
When in Canberra, make a side trip to see Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex in Paddys River, approximately 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Australian National Botanic Gardens, stop by Kimoyes, get your game on at iPlay Belconnen, and get a sense of history and politics at High Court of Australia.

To plan Canberra vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
