Nine top notch ways to indulge in Canberra

Nine ways to go all-out on a weekend in Canberra, from sipping fine wine in an impossibly cosy lounge to sleeping in a giraffe treehouse.

With a title like ‘world’s most liveable city’, it’s easy to see why so many people are making the move to Canberra.

Spring

With flowers in bloom, and the weather warming up, Spring is a great time to explore our natural beauty and enjoy one of our many seasonal events.

Summer

Our summers are warm and dry. Make the most of the longer days with a twilight picnic by the lake, or family day trip to the beach.

Autumn

As the season changes, the autumn leaves provide a kaleidoscope of colour and a photographer's dream. It's a beautiful time of year in Canberra.

Winter

A cool and crisp Winters' day gives you the perfect excuse to visit one of our world-class galleries and museums, or indulge in a hot chocolate by an open fire.
