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.
Get some historical perspective at Mugga-Mugga Cottage and Yarri and Jacky Jacky Sculpture. Do some cultural sightseeing at Australian War Memorial and National Gallery of Australia. Change things up with these side-trips from Canberra: Shoalhaven River Gorge (in Marulan), Goulburn (Garroorigang Historic Home & St. Saviour's Cathedral) and Gundagai Heritage Railway (in Gundagai). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St John the Baptist Church, explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery, steep yourself in history at Lanyon Homestead, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Lanyon Drive Cemetery.

For reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Canberra trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Canberra International Airport. November in Canberra sees daily highs of 28°C and lows of 10°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
