Overview

The National Capital Authority (NCA) is the federal government agency in charge of planning, promoting and maintaining Canberra as the National Capital.

In fulfilling this role, the NCA offers free access to the story of Canberra through the National Capital Exhibition at Regatta Point. They also offer a variety of guided group tours and self-guided walking tours across the National estate.

Further, the NCA cares for and manages the National Triangle precinct.

Free and accessible 365 days a year, the National Triangle is a Cultural Institution without walls. Home to the Cultural Icons, this precinct houses the national treasures, cherished monuments, and stories of Australia's people.

Technically defined by the great triangle created by the three avenues: Kings, Commonwealth and Constitution Avenues, the National Triangle is home to some of Australia's most important cultural institutions.

Spend the day in pristine Commonwealth Park, take a self-guided walking tour, have lunch by the water, or visit an art gallery or library.

There's so much to do in the National Triangle, you'll find yourself coming back again and again to take it all in.
