Canberra is an ideal base to explore Australia. The South Coast is only 1.5 hours drive from Canberra where you will find magnificent beaches, lakes and rivers. The area encompasses a range of National Parks and State Forests where there is great camping and hiking away from the crowds. The clubs and restaurants of Melbourne, and Sydney’s city beaches and harbor views are also easily accessible from Canberra, thanks to frequent bus services between the three cities. The Australian Alps or Snowy Mountains are just two-hour drive. The city itself, like many National capitals, is a city you can walk or cycle to explore the many museums, galleries, parks and government buildings. You can visit Australia’s Parliament House, home of the Federal Government, the High Court of Australia, the National Art Gallery and National War Memorial.
