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 in touch with nature at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and National Zoo and Aquarium. Get some cultural insight at Australian War Memorial and Questacon. Explore Canberra's surroundings by going to Morton National Park (in Wandandian), Bungonia National Park (in Bungonia) and Wee Jasper Reserves (in Wee Jasper). Spend the 2nd (Thu) exploring nature at Namadgi National Park. There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Burley Griffin, explore the world behind art at National Gallery of Australia, pedal to the sights with Mulga Bicycle Tours, and don't miss a visit to Mount Ainslie Lookout.

In April, daytime highs in Canberra are 24°C, while nighttime lows are 7°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
