Canberra has something for everyone


Canberra has emerged as a modern capital, and is the place to discover Australia’s stories through national attractions. Experience the perfect blend of arts and culture, outdoor activities and family friendly attractions that entertain and educate children like at Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre, a must-visit for Kanga Cup teams!

Go behind the scenes on a 90 minute guided tour of Australia’s premier elite sports precinct at the Australian Institute of Sport, marvel at the largest collection of Australian Indigenous art in the world at the National Gallery of Australia, visit one of the world’s greatest museums, the moving Australian War Memorial or discover the place where Australia’s stories live at the National Museum of Australia – it’s all waiting for you.

The city, with a population of 403,000 people, is designed around Lake Burley Griffin, a man-made lake popular with cyclists, walkers and joggers. It is surrounded by galleries and museums that house Australia’s art and historical collections interspersed with parks and open spaces, and is an easy 2.5 hour drive to both the pristine South Coast of New South Wales and the scenic Snowy Mountains.

Canberra has a vibrant foodie scene, with popular dining and entertainment precincts located in the city centre, Braddon, Manuka, Kingston and Dickson. From family eats to unique pop-ups, you’ll find the perfect bite to eat in Canberra.

With plenty to see and do, Canberra is ready and waiting to show you its hidden treasures when you arrive for the 2018 McDonald’s Kanga Cup.
