  • The National Gallery of Australia
  • The National Portrait Gallery
  • The National Library of Australia

Surrounded by mountains and nature reserves, the Canberra region offers excellent bushwalking and sight-seeing experiences, including:

  • Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve – 45 minute drive from the CBD

The region also boasts a range of exceptional wineries, producing cool-climate wines within a short drive of the city, including:
