Guide to Canberra

Canberra

First established in 1913 as a purpose-built capital city, Canberra is a highly undervalued holiday destination. The city is characterised by its many national memorials, federal government buildings, museums and elegant galleries. However, it's also the gateway to New South Wales' spectacular southern and southeastern regions, where dozens of magnificent natural attractions are waiting to be discovered. This is a truly spectacular holiday spot for outdoor-lovers, especially for tourists who are willing to do some scenic driving. Within an hour or two, visitors can reach the soaring peaks of the Snowy Mountains, or enjoy bushwalking at Namadgi National Park. The outdoor opportunities near Canberra are seemingly endless.

Attractions

Whether tourists are Australian or not, a visit to the National War Memorial must be made while in Canberra. Found upon Treloar Crescent, north of Lake Burley Griffin, this site is much more intriguing than regular memorials, as it also plays host to a fascinating military museum. Inside, exhibits depict Australia's involvement in international conflicts. The National Museum of Australia is another hot spot worth visiting. Its collections portray Australia's social cultural history, and a visit requires at least a few hours.

An interesting and ageless site in the city is Old Parliament House, which still welcomes many thousands of history buffs and political enthusiasts each year. In addition to historical photos and memorabilia, many of the original rooms, such as the Prime Minister's Office, have been left untouched and are open to visitors.

Outside the city centre are plenty of natural attractions just a short drive away. Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is about 40 minutes south, and boasts not only incredible walking tracks, but excellent bird-watching opportunities. However, for unrivalled views, Namadgi National Park has to be explored. It encompasses much of the Australian Capital Territory, and is part of the glorious Australian Alps. Great scenic drives, bushwalks, and mountain biking are popular activities here.

Camping in Canberra

Canberra South Motor Parkcontains both powered and unpowered sites for campervans to rest. There is a laundry on site, and barbecue facilities make it easy to enjoy cook-outs here.

Canberra Carotel is more on the expensive side of campervan sites, but it is well-maintained and well sourced. It sits in the suburb of Watson, and offers comfortable amenities like showers and wireless internet.

Alivio Tourist Park offers plenty of space for campervans to park for the night. Guests are welcome to enjoy the facilities on site, including barbecue areas, pools, spas and more.

Driving in Canberra

Canberra and the ACT boast safe roads and highways, most of which are sealed. While motorists are driving in the Territory, they should be wary of speed cameras, as there are more speed traps here than any other region in Australia. Most destinations in the ACT are close by, so overly long drives are never the norm.

  • Speed limits in the city: 50kph.
  • Speed limits on national roads: 100-110kph.
  • Help number: 000.
