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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Australian War Memorial and National Museum of Australia. National Gallery of Australia and National Portrait Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Canberra: Wee Jasper Reserves (in Wee Jasper), Goulburn (St. Saviour's Cathedral, Saints Peter and Paul's Old Cathedral, & more) and Shoalhaven River Gorge (in Marulan). There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, pause for some serene contemplation at St John the Baptist Church, ponder the world of politics at Parliament of Australia, and contemplate the long history of Lanyon Homestead.

To see photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Canberra trip itinerary planning site .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airport is Canberra International Airport. In July, daytime highs in Canberra are 13°C, while nighttime lows are 0°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
