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.
Start off your visit on the 27th (Sun): get a sense of history and politics at Parliament of Australia, then admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Australia, then get engrossed in the history at Australian War Memorial, and finally don't miss a visit to Mount Ainslie Lookout. Here are some ideas for day two: engage your brain at Questacon, then take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Australia, and then admire the striking features of Canberra Rotary Peace Bell.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, read our Canberra day trip planner.

If you are flying in from Sri Lanka, the closest major airport is Canberra International Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 35°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
