Canberra Travel Guide

Where is Canberra?

Before you take off on your adventure to Canberra, it's probably a good idea to find out where it is first. (It could also spare you some embarrassment when your friends ask exactly where you're going!)

It's the national capital of Australia and about 120 miles to the southwest of the significant city of Wollongong.

The population of this area of Australian Capital Territory is around 370,000.

Places to Visit in Canberra

Don't plan a trip to Canberra without seeing much-loved attractions like the Australian War Memorial and the National Gallery of Australia. Not your style? Don't stress — you're spoiled for choice here. Some more fine options are the National Museum of Australia and the National Zoo and Aquarium.

Tour Old Parliament House to experience the area's interesting political history. Want some more options? Take a walk through the stunning gardens of Australian National Botanic Gardens. Admire the wide array of plants, see if you can spot some birds or simply relax under the trees. But wait, there's more! Whether you're young or old, you will be sure to enjoy the hands-on scientific exhibits at Questacon.
