The capital of Australia, Canberra, is a proud city that celebrates everything our nation represents. The galleries, museums and monuments of the city are home to a host of treasures that give an insight into the culture and heritage of modern and ancient Australia. Although the ACT is a small state, there is a lot to see and do here.
Rent a cheap campervan hire, base yourself in Canberra and enjoy the countless opportunities for day trips and longer excursions to the beautiful surrounds.
When in Canberra dont miss the opportunity to wander through the Australian National Botanic Gardens, which have 6800 species of Australian native plants growing over a large site. All the climate zones have been recreated, which provides a cross section of the different Australian landscapes in a small space. Nestled at the base of Black Mountain, why not tackle the mountain next, where you will be rewarded with panoramic city views and a wide range of wild and plantlife.
Below you cannot help but notice Lake Burley Griffin, which is a great place for a picnic. Surrounded by cycling tracks, its a cheap day out to rent a bicycle and stretch your legs around its banks. Canoes and kayaks are also available, and fishing is also a common activity here. After a morning on the lake, why not head to the National Zoo and Aquarium, which houses the largest collection of big cats in Australia. Every type of animal from all over the world seems to be here, and the kids will especially love the chattering monkeys.
Scattered around the city are close to a hundred wineries that are perfect for daytrips or a longer tour. The rolling hills are lush and green, and there are a number of National Parks here too. The beautiful countryside is well worth a visit, and will make an entertaining tour in one of our campers. Visit the cellar doors of the wineries to sample the produce and maybe pick up some bottles at a cheap price.
