Though Sydney and its iconic Opera House may be the place many people automatically envisage after any mention of Australia, Canberra is in fact the country's capital. Canberra predominantly acts as Australia's political and financial hub, and also possesses its own share of charm.
Art lovers will enjoy browsing the annexes of the National Gallery of Australia where works from contemporary Australian artists, in addition to indigenous aborigines, are on display. Admire the sprawling structure of the Australian parliament building and enjoy a peaceful afternoon wandering past the fountains at Lake Burley Griffin Park.
Stay in central Canberra near the Civic Square or Acton to be placed in the heart of the action with good transport links and plentiful dining choices nearby.
Spring and fall are the best times to visit Canberra, where the temperatures are warm but not as hot as during the summer. Remember that Australia sees opposite seasons to the northern hemisphere and so fall runs from February to May, and spring runs from September to November.
