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.
Escape the urban bustle at Floriade and Australian National Botanic Gardens. Head to Macenmist Black Truffles & Wines and Albert Hallfor plenty of shopping. When in Canberra, make a side trip to see Garroorigang Historic Home in Goulburn, approximately 1h 30 min away. Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Australian War Memorial, buy something for everyone on your list at Canberra Centre, make a trip to Mount Ainslie Lookout, and get a sense of history and politics at Parliament of Australia.
