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.
Explore hidden gems such as ANZAC Parade Walk and Spas. Escape the urban bustle at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and Namadgi National Park. Step out of Canberra with an excursion to Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex in Paddys River--about 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Lanyon Homestead, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Underground Spirits, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Free Serbian Orthodox Church St George, and take an in-depth tour of Australian War Memorial.

If it weren't for the amazing view of Sydney Harbour, Mosman might seem light-years away from Australia's largest and busiest city.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Barrenjoey Lighthouse and Manly Freshwater Parish. Discover out-of-the-way places like Palm Beach and Manly Quarantine Station. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Tamarama Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Featherdale Wildlife Park, stroll through Balmoral Beach, Mosman, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Johns Anglican Cathedral.
