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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex and Free Serbian Orthodox Church St George. Get in touch with nature at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and ANZAC Parade Walk. Venture out of the city with trips to Bungendore Wood Works Gallery (in Bungendore) and Wee Jasper Reserves (in Wee Jasper). There's still lots to do: view the masterpieces at Canberra Glassworks, take in the dramatic natural features at National Rock Garden, look for all kinds of wild species at Canberra Reptile Zoo, and contemplate the long history of Lanyon Homestead.
