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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes AIS - Australian Institute of Sport, National Dinosaur Museum and Cockington Green. Bring the kids along to Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex and Questacon. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and Underground Spirits. Step out of Canberra with an excursion to Bungendore Wood Works Gallery in Bungendore--about 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Australian War Memorial, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Australia, view the masterpieces at Scott Leggo Gallery, and ponder the world of politics at Parliament of Australia.

To find photos, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Canberra trip planner .
