City: Canberra
State: Australian Capital Territory
Country: Australia

As the capital of Australia, the city of Canberra, in the Australian Capital Territory, is the nation's seat of government. Having the embassies of the world represented within this planned city also means that Canberra is rich in both natural and cultural attractions, especially museums. And while entertainment options may be limited as compared to elsewhere, culture vultures and foodies will love this city.

Here are the Top 5 Tourist Attractions to visit in Canberra, all of which hold important cultural or historical significance. All these are permanent locations which can be visited and viewed at any time throughout the year.


1. Parliament House

Yes, the New Parliament House may be the seat of Australia government, but its striking design, courtesy of Mitchell / Giurgola & Thorp Architects, and its location on a small hill, makes it among the most attractive buildings in all of the Australian Capital Territory. Designed to resemble boomerangs, and topped with among the tallest flagpoles in all of Canberra, the building and grounds are largely open to the public for viewing. Very picturesque place.



2. National Gallery Of Australia

The National Gallery Of Australia is the premier art museum of the country, located in downtown Canberra, in the Australian Capital Territory. With more than 166,000 works of art spread across 8 themed collections (Australian, Western, Eastern, Modern, Pacific, International Photography, Crafts, and Sculptures), the extensive galleries requires a good amount of browsing time. They also offer guided tours, and host rotating exhibitions.



3. National Museum Of Australia

The role of preserving the country's social history is undertaken by the National Museum Of Australia, in Canberra, in the Australian Capital Territory. Highlighting key issues, people, and events that shaped the development of the nation till today, the museum curates over 200,000 objects of historical and cultural value. Spanning 3 themed collections (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Culture & History, Australian History & Society Since 1788, and People's Interaction With The Australian Environment), the collection is rich and diverse. The building itself is iconic, based on a theme of knotted ropes representing the intertwined stories of the people.



4. Australian War Memorial

Regarded among the most significant memorials here, the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, is the country's memorial to those who took part in the wars involving the Commonwealth of Australia. The compound, designed in Byzantine architecture style, includes a sculpture garden, and an extensive military museum. A massive collection chronicles the involvement of the nation, spanning both World Wars, through art, photographs, film, audio recordings, military technology, military equipment, official documents, and media articles. A very immersive experience, particularly if you take a guided tour.



5. Corin Forest

About an hour's drive out of Canberra, but still within the Australian Capital Territory, is Corin Forest. Located within the Tidbinbilla Mountain Range, it offers a unique Australia experience, a year-round alpine adventure. During summer, guests can trek trails, mountain bike, picnic, or enjoy the exhilarating Alpine Slide that descends 1.2km through the forest. But come winter, the place magically transforms into a snow-play area, offering skiing, snow boarding, tobogganing, building snowmen, snowball fights, or lessons with certified instructors. A nearby lodge provides amenities, with the highlight being roasting marshmallows over an open fire.
