As the country’s Capital city, Canberra is obviously home to Australia’s
Parliament, which sits on a central hill, with the city planned around
it on north/south and east/west axes.
Canberra highlights include the Houses
of Parliament, the Australian
Institute of Sport, the Australian
War Memorial, the High Court, the Royal
Australian Mint, the National Dinosaur Museum and the National Gallery of
Australia. A hire
car is recommended when visiting Canberra so that you can set your own timetable
and itinerary for visiting all the highlights.
The cool region that surrounds Canberra makes for perfect grape growing and there
wineries and are over 140 vineyards with
more than 30 cellars doors in the countryside around Canberra. Most of these
are within a 30 minute drive from the city, yet another reason why a Bargain
Wheels car rental makes good sense.
The majority of visitors to Canberra choose to explore the many activities and
significant sites within the city limits, such as National
Science and Technology Centre, the National Carillon and the National Film
and Sound Archive.
Canberra Accommodation & Dining
With the many tourists to Canberra and the constant stream of politicians and
dignitaries, Canberra has more than its fair share of hotels
and motels to cater to all budgets.
Nothing is better than a hot soup or roast meal when the temperature outside
drops, and there’s plenty on offer in Canberra, including a great selection of bars,
pubs, restaurants and cafes.
