The carefully designed city makes travelling from location to location easy as pie so you spend less time yelling at your sat-nav and more time enjoying the sights.

If you weren’t forced to visit Canberra as a primary school student, or even if you were it’s always worth spending some time at the Australian War Memorial. Being surrounded by the reality of Australia’s contributions in world wars is usually a humbling and patriotic experience. The museum hosts some incredible relics with the facilities to trace back any family members who served in war so it’s a great albeit often emotional experience.
A short drive from the heart of Canberra will take you to Black Mountain Tower which rises just under 200 metres over the mountain summit. While the idea of visiting a telecommunications tower might seem a little boring the stunning panoramic views of Canberra it provides is well worth the trip. The tower also serves as a revolving restaurant so once you’ve finished basking the glorious view you can grab a bite to eat.
