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 get to explore Australian War Memorial and Questacon. Get some cultural insight at National Gallery of Australia and Capital Wines. Venture out of the city with trips to Murrumbateman (Wily Trout Vineyard, McKellar Ridge Wines, & more), Gundog Cork Street Cellar (in Gundaroo) and Surveyor's Hill Bed and Breakfast (in Wallaroo). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Burley Griffin, admire nature's wide array of creatures at National Zoo and Aquarium, sample the fine beverages at Underground Spirits, and get a sense of history and politics at Parliament of Australia.
