Visited for the multicultural festival! This was great! Canberra is unique and I wouldn't normally make it a vacation spot because I associate it with work, however over the years some cute cafes have popped up making the experience a different one .

Loved how everything is within a 10 minute drive of each other. So many restaurants to choose from. We ate at Avida which was fun and delicious; and at the Garden Pavilions at the Pialligo Estate which is gorgeous. A very clean, trendy and friendly city.

There are lots of hidden food treasures in Canberra. Driving through you think there is not much there but walking or cycling around you can suddenly come across hidden places. Kingston foreshore always a treat and you can walk around the lake.

Ease of finding my way round. Closeness of Uni House to Civic, roads in & out, shops, food, safety. I also spent time in Queanbeyan NSW, Canberra's neighbour. Its a great city too. I'd recommend both.

Recommended in Canberra

Canberra lacked easy access to holiday brochures and most employees of different offices think referring to the internet is the way to go. People in general lack knowledge of their own city. What we did see we enjoyed.

Old Parliament House, The National Library, The War Memorial...these in particular remind us of our history and let the tourist see where we have come from.

National Portrait Gallery War Memorial National Library National Art Gallery

Booking.com asked travelers...

Why do you recommend Canberra for food?

Variety of restaurants to cater for local and international visitors.

Variety of food for any "fine dining" customers

There is so much to do you need a few days

Crowds? There better then the ones Sydney

Great food, wineries and nature.
