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.
For shopping fun, head to Bungendore Wood Works Gallery or Drill Hall Gallery. Escape the urban bustle at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and Federal Golf Club. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Canberra: Murrumbateman (Jeir Creek Wines, Wily Trout Vineyard, & more), Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex (in Paddys River) and Gundog Cork Street Cellar (in Gundaroo). Spend the 30th (Mon) exploring nature at Namadgi National Park. There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Australian War Memorial, engage your brain at Questacon, stop by Macenmist Black Truffles & Wines, and do a tasting at Capital Wines.

To see reviews, maps, and tourist information, read our Canberra trip itinerary planner.

Expect a daytime high around 20°C in September, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
