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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Questacon and National Gallery of Australia. Take a break from the city and head to Lake Burley Griffin and Floriade. And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Australian War Memorial, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St John the Baptist Church, enjoy breathtaking views from Telstra Tower, and appreciate the history behind Australian Vietnam Forces National Memorial.
