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.
Mugga-Mugga Cottage and St John the Baptist Church will appeal to history buffs. For shopping fun, head to Bungendore Wood Works Gallery or Tootsie. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Canberra: Gundog Cork Street Cellar (in Gundaroo), Macenmist Black Truffles & Wines (in Bredbo) and Murrumbateman (Wily Trout Vineyard, Jeir Creek Wines, & more). Spend the 13th (Tue) exploring nature at Morton National Park. Spend the 21st (Wed) exploring nature at Bungonia National Park. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Floriade, take an in-depth tour of Australian War Memorial, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Australia, and get curious at Questacon.

To see photos, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Canberra travel route builder app .

If you are flying in from Cambodia, the closest major airport is Canberra International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 15°C in August, and nighttime lows around 0°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
