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.
Head to Macenmist Black Truffles & Wines and PhotoAccessfor some retail therapy. Escape the urban bustle at Lake Burley Griffin and ANZAC Parade Walk. Venture out of the city with trips to Surveyor's Hill Bed and Breakfast (in Wallaroo), Wily Trout Vineyard (in Murrumbateman) and Arcadia Crookwell (in Crookwell). The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Australian War Memorial, get curious at Questacon, explore the galleries of Drill Hall Gallery, and look for all kinds of wild species at Floriade.

If you are flying in from Thailand, the closest major airport is Canberra International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 15°C, and evening lows to 0°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
