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.
On the 26th (Sat), get engrossed in the history at Australian War Memorial, then revel in the low prices at Canberra Outlet Centre, then delve into the lush surroundings at Gondwana Rainforest, and finally get a sense of history and politics at Parliament of Australia. Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to Mount Ainslie Lookout and then contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Burley Griffin.
