Canberra is Australia’s capital for a reason. The city is packed with cultural treasures and holds international best infrastructures. This city is a national jewel that travellers should visit at least once in their lifetime.
Did you know that Canberra City is a well-planned city? Architects ensured that every placement of infrastructures is strategically designed to bring forth the beauty of man-made designs and nature’s magnificence. Canberra is like a masterpiece of Madame Tussaud. Everything has a purpose. Visit Mount Ainslie to get a good vantage point. At the top of the mountain, you’ll behold the commemorative plaques about Australian battles, Anzac parade, lively lakes, and the breezy atmosphere of the city. It’s a great way to end your journey, to sum up, your visit.
Canberra holds one of the largest botanic gardens in Australia. If Mount Ainslie is perfect for the end game of your journey, the National Botanic Garden is perfect for the start game. The location is pretty strategic because it’s just a kilometer away from the west side. There are millions of species of flowers and a water dragon in a 50-hectare garden. The part of the day to visit this garden is in mornings when flowers bloom at their finest. Your Amsterdam card will be optimized because a few walk away from the garden, there are other notable parks you could visit with your kids.
Lake Burley Griffin is named after its architect who did all the planning in 1912. It’s man-made with one flaw, it looks so natural. Since the lake is located at the centre of the city, there are other top destinations you could visit like the National Gallery, National Library, Questacon, and National Museum. Another thing that will surprise you is the nearby museums have free entrance. Yes, it’s free. You’ll have more credits to shop online using special discounts offering. Before you go to see the galleries, make sure to wait for the sprinkles around the lake. It’s a symbol of a safe voyage.
