Everything you need to know about Canberra: A tourists Guide

Canberra, the capital city of Australia, is its largest inland city and is known for its breathtaking natural landscapes and mountain ranges.

Did you know that in 2019, this beautiful city had 2.9 million domestic and over 2 million international visitors? So if you’re planning to visit there soon, here is a complete tourist guide that will make your stay in Canberra memorable!

1. Play around in the Lake Burley Griffin

For all the water sports enthusiasts out there, Lake Burley Griffin is ideal. You can take a stroll along the lake or indulge in fun activities like kayaking, boating, and even biking!

This lake also allows tourists to skimp their boats by bringing along a few friends. So grab your buddies, get a picnic basket ready, and go sailing in the serene and beautiful Lake Burley Griffin.

Most people like to stock up on cheese and other savories from Coles, but you can collect snacks from anywhere you like! 

2. Snuggle with a wombat

Next up, we have the perfect spot for animal lovers. If you love furry creatures, especially wombats, you must check out Sleepy Burrows. This little wombat sanctuary is just a 45-minute drive from Canberra, but you’ll have your life experience here.

You must play and cuddle with the adorable wombats at Sleepy Burrows and then feed them using milk bottles. The best part? Every penny of your donation visit goes to help the wombats that are being taken care of here!

3. Break things at Breakr

We all have our fair share of anger and frustration. But if you need to destress for a little while, Breaker is just the place for you.

This is Canberra’s first break room (literally!) and contains a room with solid walls. It is filled with mugs, cups, vases, glasses, and other fragile items that you can freely break and release all your pent-up anger.

The Breaker authorities will fit you with special gear and give you 30 items, all of which you can start smashing away using a bat or a crowbar!

4. Indulge in adult services

Who doesn’t like to have some adult entertainment in a foreign land, especially when you’re on a boring business trip or a fun bachelor’s party? Well, if you’re looking to spice up your night, then Canberra escorts are the ones you should go for.

Don’t worry; escort services are completely legal in Australia, so you won’t have to worry about getting arrested. There are also innumerable websites to choose from, so make sure you do your research properly before booking the woman of your dreams!

5. Visit the Questacon

If you’re a science lover, you will fall in love with Questacon! And even if you’re not, there’s no harm in checking out an amazing interactive science museum, right? The most engaging part of Questacon is that you understand extremely complicated scientific concepts in simple ways.

This is why, for over 20 years, Questacon has been a fan favorite for busloads of kids. Finally, you can get into simulation experiences that teach you about microcosms, gravity, and lightning strikes.

6. Go to the National Gallery of Australia

If you like pop art or modern art, then visiting the National Gallery of Australia is a must. One very famous piece here is Skyspace by James Turrell. Skyspace might look like a simple dome, but this sculpture is so much more than that.

On another side of the National Gallery, you can find the sculpture garden, which contains the sculptures of talented artists like Anthony Gormley. Another popular piece is the painting by Fujiko Nakaya, which gives out special effects when fog is blown into it.

7. See the Florida

There’s nothing more beautiful than welcoming spring, and Canberra knows how to do it in the most amazing way possible! Canberra’s official welcoming of spring is conducted through a blooming festival known as Florida.

You can walk through the gardens to see the beautiful flowers in all shapes, colors, and sizes. And once the sun sets, you can even take in the beautiful Nightfest conducted by famous comedians and artists.

Over to you…

These are some of the amazing things that Canberra has to offer its tourists, although there are many more things to do!
