Canberra

4.2

The Bush Capital

As Australia's capital city (and the home of Parliament House), Canberra plays host to a community of residents who've relocated from larger cities such as Melbourne and Sydney to work in politics, government and related industries such as media. Add a large student population (some of Australia's most prestigious universities are located here) and a number of renowned galleries and museums, and the result is a small but cosmopolitan city with a great food scene and plenty of creative flair. International flights fly directly to Canberra Airport from Singapore and Wellington. There are also frequent domestic flights from major Australian capital cities. Canberra is a three hour drive from Sydney and a 6 1/2 hour drive from Melbourne.
Canberra is in Australian Capital Territory. Make Canberra central to your Australia travel plans using our Australia online day trip planner .
