About This Trip

Travelling to the administrative centre of any country doesn’t sound like the premise for a great weekend, but hey, most countries' administrative centre is not the glorious Canberra. Packed with history, but compounded by modern chic, Canberra has transformed into the coolest city in Australia and you can explore it all. 

 

Based in the vibrant Braddon neighbourhood, where every street hosts chic coffee roasteries, vibrant restaurants and an incredible coffee shop culture, you have the ideal spot to explore the city. From this base, we will take you out on a full day of exploration to truly immerse yourself in the history and culture of this incredible city.  

 

The first stop on your tour takes you up the slopes of Mount Ainslie, which provides amazing views over the whole city. Your expert guide will let you know the history of the city, how it grew and what districts you are about to visit before you zoom down the hill and get stuck into this fascinating tour. Taking you through the most immersive Parliamentary tour you can get, you will walk the corridors of power at Parliament House and Old Parliament House before finishing off at the Australian War Memorial, for a tearful and poignant end to an incredible day.

highlights

Canberra is such an incredible city but often overlooked in favour of Sydney and Melbourne. We wanted to create a unique escape that let you in, behind the scenes at the parliamentary side of the city, to show you in detail how the system works and what it is like to work there every day. The tour we have set up is so incredibly immersive that you will know the city inside out afterwards and be ready to discover what other treasures the city holds. 

 

We know how good the gastronomy of Canberra is and we specially chose your accommodation for the two nights in Braddon, an eclectic neighbourhood where the focus is on great coffee and outstanding cuisine. You are only minutes walk from some of the best restaurants in the city and the LRT giving you easy access to the whole of Canberra.


location

This trip is all about Canberra, a short break with a big punch. When you touch down in Canberra Airport, just head to the car rental desk to pick up your Toyota Corolla (or equivalent) and zoom off into the city. With the freedom of a car, you can explore the wild trails that surround the city, or just cruise from neighbourhood to neighbourhood, stopping at the places that interest you the most. At the end of your stay, simply drive back to the airport and drop off the car. Simple!
