Food & Drink

Culinary highlights of Canberra

From famous vineyards to award-winning restaurants and renowned dishes, Canberra is paradise for foodies. Experience affordable farm-to-table dining at the Food Co-op Shop & Café, which sells local organic produce in its grocery section and whole foods at the café. This not-for-profit eatery's breakfast, vegan lunches and funky pies are popular among locals and visitors alike.

FreakShakes have found an impressive following on Instagram after Pâtissez launched them in 2015, and trying them at their place of origin is truly special. Picking from the variety of flavours may be a tough choice, though. Topped with ingredients such as fresh whipped cream, Nutella and chocolate fudge brownies, every shake here is a sweet lover’s delight.

Art & Culture

Art and culture in Canberra

Canberra's roots as a planned city and the aesthetic influence of the 19th-century Arts and Crafts Movement is visible all over. Among the city's several delights, the art and culture scene is particularly famous.

Visit the National Museum of Australia to learn about the country’s 60,000-year social history. Artefacts related to Aboriginal and Islander cultures as well as interactive exhibits, grouped by concept and not era, are highlights at this museum.

The National Portrait Gallery is interesting, not only for art lovers but all travellers. While the exterior façade sports a contemporary geometric design, the inside houses about 400 mixed-media portraits of important Australians across various fields.

The National Multicultural Festival, held over three days in February, is also an exciting way to experience the city's cosmopolitan culture. Dance, music and food from all over the world come together for this celebration of cultural diversity.

Family Activities

Family-friendly attractions in Canberra

Travellers vacationing with family at holiday cottages in Canberra have a multitude of options to enjoy in the city. Pack a picnic basket and spend a relaxed day at the Australian National Botanic Gardens, home to the world's biggest collection of native Australian plants. Free guided tours of the gardens are available, too.

Join a kangaroo spotting tour to see these marsupials in the wild, or just visit places where kangaroo sightings are high. The lawns of the Governor House, the path up to Mount Ainslie, and Namadgi National Park’s Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve are a few such places.

The 250-hectare National Arboretum is home to varied flora, including species, from all over the world, in addition to picnic areas, a café, and a restaurant. Take a walk, cycle, or join a guided tour of the area. The Pod Playground, a big hit with children, offers climbing frames, swings, giant cubbies, and other play options.

Local Events

Experience Canberra’s regular events

Canberra is also known for its many festivals, giving visitors an opportunity to experience the city as locals do. The beautiful Floriade Festival celebrates spring flowers, transforming the Commonwealth Park into a riot of colours over a month in September–October. Flower lovers from all over flock to see over a million tulips and other flowers. There are also photography workshops, sculptures, live entertainment and markets.

For a true-blue Australian festival experience, attend the National Folk Festival around Easter. Every year in March–April, approximately 50,000 people from across the country arrive in Canberra to celebrate five days of pure fun with folk music, dance, and crafts at the Exhibition Park. Explore the stalls at the festival's market to pick up cool knick-knacks and sample delicious fare.
