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 15th (Sat), ponder the world of politics at Parliament of Australia, then get engrossed in the history at Australian War Memorial, and then don't miss a visit to Mount Ainslie Lookout. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Australia and then get curious at Questacon.

To find reviews, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Canberra road trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 20°C in September, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
