Things to do in Canberra

Canberra: A forgotten gem

Looking for things to do in Canberra? Well, while I don’t get to Canberra often, when I do I always want to make the most of it. It is our nation’s capital, the centre stage, and it has experiences to match. But there is much more to Canberra than government buildings and galleries.

The city is a hive of activities – from hot air ballooning to getting behind the scenes with animals at the zoo. With the weather a little colder in winter there are loads of lovely gourmet delights to indulge in, not to mention vineyards close by.

It’s a city full of cultural experiences to dive into – here are some of my favourites.

2 Nights Deluxe Glamping with Breakfast and Dinner

Think Out of Africa, but only two hours drive from Sydney. This experience is an absolute gem.

Tandem Skydive

The team at work surprised me with this one. What a sense of joy you get as the wind rushes past you. I can now tick skydiving off my list.

Home Organising and Decluttering Service

A great gift for someone who is moving house or office or for anyone wanting to KonMari their life.

Cheetah Encounter at the National Zoo

Who needs to go to Africa when you can experience the big cats up close here in the nation’s captial?

Helicopter Flight over Canberra

A wonderful experience to really take in a bird’s eye view of this young city.
