Australian Capital Territory Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local Australian Capital Territory Area
A place designed for purpose and functionality, the ACT is the smallest locality in all of Australia. Predominantly made up of state forests and nature reserves, the ACT is an unlikely place to source excitement and entertainment. However, there are an abundance of things to do and activities to undertake, including the luxury of visiting the family friendly Questacon , an entertainment facility designed to teach science in the most entertaining way. Arguably Canberra’s most sought after local attraction that’s fun for all the family.
As you enter from the south, you’ll come across a number of local hiking and walking trails within the dense Namadgi National Park, until you spring forth from the other side, seeking all the hottest events in town! Seek solace in the abundance of interesting and educational facilities that Canberra has to offer including the gorgeous Cockington Green Gardens .
One of the highlights for any sporting buff, the Australian Institute of Sport is a top level sporting and training facility, which is globally recognised for high quality, high intensity performance and training for the many athletes who attend. Within the walls of this unique facility you’ll be spoilt for choice as there are a number of exciting things to do inside the brain of Australian sport.
Just north of the shores of Lake Burley Griffin, you’ll find the historically important local attraction, The Australian War Memorial , which serves as a resting place for the thousands of men and women who fought and died for the Australian cause. Paying tribute to the fallen soldiers of the past, the Australian War Memorial operates as a research centre, a museum, and as a commemorative area for the acknowledgement of past servicemen and servicewomen during the Anzac Day and Remembrance Day Memorial Services every year.
After a big day of seeing all of Canberra’s local attractions, take a trip back in time with a visit to Old Parliament House and get involved with all the fun and excitement of Australia’s political past.
