Experience one good thing after another with your family in this compact city.



SEE Canberra Glassworks is Australia’s only cultural centre that is wholly dedicated to contemporary glass art, with a workspace for glass artists and a gallery for those interested in working with this delicate material. Explore exhibitions in its two dedicated spaces, watch art in the making in the Hotshop, sign up for a class, or browse the shop for something to take home.

DO Cycle, wander or segway along Lake Burley Griffin and burn off some energy. Check out some of Canberra’s iconic galleries and museums scattered along the shoreline, and cycle or walk the 5-kilometre loop between the Kings Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue bridges. For kids aged 12 years and older, discover the Lake and famous landmarks on a segway with the SegGlideRide company.

SHOP Make your way over to Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre and trawl through the unique handcrafted items on offer. Featuring products by local crafters and design artists, you’ll find only the most cutting-edge designs, located in one convenient space within Canberra’s city centre.

STAY An achingly lovable hotel, Jamala Wildlife Lodge combines zoo and aquarium to visitors in an all-inclusive luxury lodge experience with behind-the-scenes tours and animal encounters. Includes six unique Giraffe treehouse suites nestled into a reserve and five Jungle Bungalow suites adjoining different animal enclosures, including lions, bears or cheetahs.
