Fasten your seatbelts and get ready to explore Canberra, where you will discover more than you expect.
Driving to Canberra is a breeze, making the nation’s capital the perfect spot for a weekend getaway or short break. Melbournians, expect a scenic eight hour road trip, passing through country towns with authentic local experiences. Sydneysiders, it’s an even quicker journey, with just three hours’ down the highway ahead of you. Both drives accommodate those who like to get off the beaten track, with plenty of scenic route alternatives.
Already here? Spend a couple of day’s touring to get a true mix of culture, art, nature and gastronomic adventures. Everything is just moments away, so you don’t need to spend too much time in the car. Venture into Canberra’s award-winning cool climate wine district just over half an hour’s drive from the city. Or, head off and explore the Snowy Mountain’s in Australia’s high country, or the unspoilt coastline of the South Coast.
