Where to stay in Canberra

Best places to stay in Canberra

Canberra is inland from the southeast coast of Australia. With its plush forestry and farmland, it definitely earns the nickname “Bush Capital. While it might be away from the ocean, it does have Lake Burley Griffin, where you can glide out onto the water with a sailboat or kayak and enjoy the lakeshore views of the Parliament House, local museums and more. Canberra is a unique gem, because it offers some of the most fascinating indigenous art collections of the country, which is why it is a top spot for art collectors.

Acton

Acton is close to the city centre and also home to the Australian National University. A short drive from Acton, you have the Australian National Botanic Gardens and Black Mountain (Kalkajaka) National Park. Stay at the NewActon Hotel Hotel on Marcus Clarke Street and you will be in the centre of it all.

Canberra Central

Canberra Central spreads out in a circular shape and includes the London Circuit. In the centre of the city, you have plenty of attractions, hotels and you are a short walk from Commonwealth Park. Hotels in the city centre range from 5-star accommodations to budget-friendly places to stay. Try the Crowne Plaza Canberra on Binara Street. You also have the contemporary Novotel Canberra Hotel and the more economical BreakFree Capital Tower.

Chinatown

What to do in Canberra

Canberra has a city centre that is vibrant, and the outskirts offer outdoor activities that are fit for the entire family. Even if you are only in this quaint area for a weekend, you will have more than enough to do during your days in the Aussie capital.

  • Wine and dine your way around Canberra. As one of the increasingly popular culinary destinations in the country, you will find unique eateries that even the self-proclaimed foodies have yet to find. Fine dining is available throughout the city centre. You must try the Chairman & Yip. For a flat white coffee, visit the company owned by the World Barista Champion of 2015, ONA Coffee. Enjoy an upscale dining experience at Eightysix.
  • Shop and enjoy the lively creativity atmosphere of Canberra by spending time at the Old Bus Depot Markets. Here you find everything from hipster fashion to houseware and organic produce to snack on.
  • Escape from the city centre and enjoy the beauty of nature that surrounds Canberra. The heavily forested region of Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is 40 minutes from Canberra, but has everything from cockatoos to kangaroos to see. Make a trip to Canberra’s National Zoo & Aquarium in the city centre where you have bungalows and treehouses overlooking the animals.
  • Explore the unique artwork of Canberra, and possibly purchase a piece to take home while you are here. The houses of art here are extraordinary, and you can also find a collection of priceless Aboriginal artwork.
