Canberra— 1 night
The Bush Capital
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 9th (Sun), make a trip to Mount Ainslie Lookout, then take an in-depth tour of Australian War Memorial, then contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Burley Griffin, and finally get a sense of history and politics at Parliament of Australia. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: admire the masterpieces at National Portrait Gallery, then admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Australia, and then engage your brain at Questacon.
Plan my Canberra trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Canberra International Airport. In February, daytime highs in Canberra are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
