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 a sense of the local culture at Australian War Memorial and Gundog Cork Street Cellar. Head to Strathnairn Gallery and Drill Hall Galleryfor some retail therapy. Explore Canberra's surroundings by going to Bungendore (Bungendore Wood Works Gallery & Paul Kowalski Photography Gallery), Surveyor's Hill Bed and Breakfast (in Wallaroo) and Murrumbateman (Wily Trout Vineyard, Dionysus Winery, & more). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Floriade, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Burley Griffin, contemplate the long history of Mugga-Mugga Cottage, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Australian National Botanic Gardens.
