Canberra. Australia's best-kept secret?

The epicentre of Australia’s government and politics, Canberra maintains a modern energy. As Australia’s only purpose-built, planned city, it’s easy to navigate, and brimming with gardens and green spaces. Its excellent layout means that compared to other major cities, Canberra has far less congestion. Meaning it’s always easy to access the city's abundant museums and galleries, malls and markets, bars and clubs, restaurants and cafes, wineries and breweries, sports stadiums, theatres, national parks, nature reserves and walking trails.To top things off, Canberra boasts many family friendly venues inlcduing Questacon,the National Zoo and Aquarium and the National Arboretum. And if you’re heading out of town, Canberra's geographical location means a quick weekend getaway to Sydney, the South Coast or the snow fields, is always an option.  

Canberra has an excellent system of arterial roads which rarely experience the traffic found in other cities. Alternative forms of transport are easily accessible and include a light rail, bus network, taxis and a comprehensive array of bicycle paths. 

Canberra has four distinct seasons. Summer is generally warm to hot with low humidity (13 – 28 degrees Celsius), winter is cool and sunny (0 – 11 degrees Celsius), and spring and autumn are mostly mild (7-20 degrees Celsius).
