About Canberra and the region

VisitCanberra logo

Australia's capital, Canberra, is a young and vibrant multicultural city that reflects the story of Australia. Discover a city featuring a kaleidoscope of colours and experiences that unfold with four distinct seasons. Explore the great outdoors among the leafy surrounds or venture into national parks and get up close to native Australian wildlife.

The capital offers visitors an abundance of world-class festivals and events, outdoor activities, natural beauty and family-friendly attractions that will entertain and excite children. Our food scene is red hot and our local arts movement is thriving. Tempt your tastebuds at stylish restaurants, bars and cafes or spend the day sampling award-winning cool climate wines at some of the region's 30 boutique cellar doors.

With its attractions so close to each other you can pack a lot into a short break in Canberra.
