A planned city with streets laid out in elaborate, geometric patterns and founded specifically to serve as the capital of the emerging Australian state, Canberra has a self-sufficient atmosphere.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Lanyon Homestead and St John the Baptist Church. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex and Canberra Glassworks. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Canberra: Goulburn (Kingsdale Wines, Saints Peter and Paul's Old Cathedral, & more), Bungendore Wood Works Gallery (in Bungendore) and Batemans Bay (Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens & Batemans Bay Mini Golf). There's lots more to do: trek along ANZAC Parade Walk, take in the exciting artwork at Scott Leggo Gallery, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, and get curious at Questacon.

To see where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Canberra driving holiday planning tool .
