Canberra
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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at ANZAC Parade Walk and Yarrangobilly Caves. Venture out of the city with trips to Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex (in Paddys River), Sugar Pine Walk (in Laurel Hill) and Tumut River (in Tumut). There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, enjoy some diversion at AIS - Australian Institute of Sport, buy something for everyone on your list at Canberra Centre, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

For maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Canberra trip itinerary planning app .

In October, daily temperatures in Canberra can reach 25°C, while at night they dip to 6°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
