Known as Australia’s often overlooked capital city, Canberra is the country’s largest inland city and a cultural hub. Chosen as the compromise capital city thanks to its handy location south of Sydney and north of Melbourne, it’s nestled within the Australian Capital Territory. A planned city, there’s are plenty of things to do in Canberra.

Visitors should check out the Australian War Memorial for its shrine and museum to Australia’s military sacrifice. The Parliament Building is open to the public – who knows, you may even catch a parliamentary debate. Check out the incredible contemporary and Aboriginal selection of art at the National Gallery of Australia, and don’t miss the incredible sprawling views across Canberra from Mount Ainslie.
