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.
Questacon and National Gallery of Australia will appeal to museum buffs. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Macenmist Black Truffles & Wines and Capital Region Farmers Market. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Canberra: Murrumbateman (Clonakilla & Four Winds Vineyard) and Garroorigang Historic Home (in Goulburn). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at St John the Baptist Church, browse the different shops at Canberra Centre, explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery, and look for all kinds of wild species at Floriade.

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airport is Canberra International Airport. In December in Canberra, expect temperatures between 32°C during the day and 14°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
