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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Mugga-Mugga Cottage and Lanyon Homestead. Popular historic sites such as St John the Baptist Church and ACT Baha'i Centre are in your itinerary. Step out of Canberra to go to Paddys River and see Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex, which is approximately 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Australian War Memorial, explore the galleries of Scott Leggo Gallery, stop by Trove Canberra, and get curious at Questacon.

To see photos, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, read Canberra trip itinerary website .
