Australian Capital Territory Tours, Vacation Packages & Travel Experiences
Our Australian Capital Territory Tours
Australian Capital Territory is a territory in the south east of Australia, enclaved within New South Wales. It is the smallest self-governing internal territory in Australia. Its most populous city is Canberra, the country's capital, which makes an easy addition to an Australia vacation bound for Sydney or Melbourne.
Australian Capital Territory Vacation Highlights
Canberra is an attractive planned city, known as ‘a city in a park,’ steeped in national history and culture. It is surrounded by mountain ranges and hills covered in bush land. It is also almost totally surrounded by the beautiful Lake Burley Griffin. The impressive Parliament Building stands out on the summit of Capital Hill. On trips to Australia, Canberra is also a city of festivals for all seasons such as Floriade when the city celebrates springtime by filling Commonwealth Park with thousands of blooms across artistic flower beds. For food and wine lovers, follow Poachers Way Trail to discover the 140 vineyards and 33 wineries located around the nearby countryside.
Museums and Galleries
One imposing site and one of Canberra’s most iconic attractions is the War Memorial which pays homage to Australia’s military history. There is also an excellent selection of art galleries and museums. Some of the major ones of interest are the National Gallery of Australia, the Questacon Science Centre and the Mount Stromlo Observatory.
Parks and Trails
For the more active on Australian tours, try the mountain trails at Mount Stromlo or Brindabella National Park in the heart of the Australian Alps, or follow the Yerrabi Walking Track with views of the Bimberi Peak and its undisturbed ecosystems. You can find kangaroos and wallabies here while exploring wetlands and wildflower-cloaked plains. Namadgi National Park is perfect for rock climbing, hiking, horseback riding as well as the bush land city of Canberra Nature Park.
