  • Beautiful little park. You can choose from a range of walks including a 1-2 hour one (halfway up mount tennant, to the lookout that can been see in these photos where there is a timber bench seat next to a large boulder), which boasts excellent views with minimal effort. And then you can do mount tennant which might take most of your day, and this one boasts even more spectacular views, but take water and food! Staff at the centre are very knowledgable, and there are a few maps you can choose from on site.

Where to stay in Canberra

To stay comfortably near most main attractions in Canberra, choose a hotel in the city's central district. If you're a bit more budget-minded, look for a guesthouse in a neighborhood farther away from the city center. Residential areas offer more parking and quieter rooms at a fraction of the price charged by big-name centrally located hotels. Rental apartments spread across Canberra serve as another cozy option and offer lodgings ranging from simply furnished to luxurious five-star properties.
