Australian Capital Territory

The Australian Capital Territory houses Canberra, Australia’s capital, built between Sydney and Melbourne in the early 20th century.

Explore Canberra to experience Australian culture and history at superb monuments and galleries. Here you will find Parliament House where the nation’s Senate and House of Representatives meet.

The city is also home to prestigious universities as well as renowned galleries and museums.

As Australia's capital city, Canberra houses many of the nation's most important art, including a priceless collection of Aboriginal art. The National Gallery of Australia is Australia's pre-eminent public compiler of art, housing more than 7500 Australian, Asian and Aboriginal artworks across 13 different galleries.

Canberra's reputation as a culinary destination is relatively newfound. The city has played host to several excellent fine dining restaurants, such as Chairman & Yip, for decades.

The heavily forested valley of Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is only 40 minutes from Canberra, but it teems with wildlife, including emus, kangaroos and cockatoos.

Tour the Australian Capital Territory from Canberra, home to Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial and the National Gallery of Australia, with its dedicated Aboriginal art galleries. Follow the Poachers Way to wineries and galleries, picnic along the Murrumbidgee Corridor and discover the wildlife, walking trails and Aboriginal rock art of Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and Namadgi National Park. Explore the magnificent Australian Alps.
