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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Mugga-Mugga Cottage and Gundog Cork Street Cellar. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Australian War Memorial and Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex. Explore Canberra's surroundings by going to Gundagai (Yarri and Jacky Jacky Sculpture & Gundagai Heritage Railway), Goulburn (Garroorigang Historic Home, Saints Peter and Paul's Old Cathedral, & more) and Lake George Winery (in Collector). Next up on the itinerary: stroll through ANZAC Parade Walk, learn about winemaking at Jeir Creek Wines, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Australia, and stroll the grounds of Lanyon Drive Cemetery.
