This federal capital houses most of the country’s historical structures and cultural institutions, but that does not end there. This city has full of surprises, from its bustling dining scene comprised of local eateries and international restaurants to its colorful festivals such as the Floriade, the celebration of flowers. In its modern and urban atmosphere, there perfectly blends its natural attractions such as the famed kangaroos and the Brindabella Ranges, and some man-made wonders like the Lake Burley Griffin. With all these happening all together, Canberra is without a doubt a place to see, feel, and explore.
