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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Macenmist Black Truffles & Wines and Albert Hall. Your inner history buff will appreciate St John the Baptist Church and Garroorigang Historic Home. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Canberra: Murrumbateman (Clonakilla & Four Winds Vineyard) and Corin Forest (in Paddys River). Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Australian War Memorial, look for all kinds of wild species at Floriade, engage your brain at Questacon, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Australia.

For photos, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Canberra day trip site .

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airport is Canberra International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 32°C in December, and nighttime lows around 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
