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 and learn at Australian War Memorial and Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex. Mugga-Mugga Cottage and Gundagai Heritage Railway will appeal to history buffs. Explore Canberra's surroundings by going to Bungendore (Bungendore Wood Works Gallery & X Gallery), Yarri and Jacky Jacky Sculpture (in Gundagai) and Wee Jasper Reserves (in Wee Jasper). The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, pause for some serene contemplation at St John the Baptist Church, steep yourself in history at Lanyon Homestead, and tour the pleasant surroundings at ANZAC Parade Walk.

For photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Canberra trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Canberra International Airport. In September in Canberra, expect temperatures between 63°F during the day and 37°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
