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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Questacon and Cockington Green. Go for a jaunt from Canberra to Mogo to see Mogo Zoo about 2 hours away. Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Australian War Memorial, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Australia, observe the fascinating underwater world at National Zoo and Aquarium, and make a trip to Mount Ainslie Lookout.

For other places to visit, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Canberra attractions planner.

In March, daily temperatures in Canberra can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
