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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lanyon Homestead and ACT Baha'i Centre. Get some historical perspective at St John the Baptist Church and Greek Orthodox Church of St Nicholas. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Presbyterian Church of St. Andrew, admire nature's wide array of creatures at National Zoo and Aquarium, appreciate the history behind Canberra Rotary Peace Bell, and steep yourself in history at Free Serbian Orthodox Church St George.
