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.

  • Awesome visit. Really friendly staff.
  • Caught the Walter Burley Griffin exhibition which was really interesting both architecturally, artistically and from a town planning point of view. There are some interesting things to see, but it's probably not for everyone. I enjoyed looking through some of the historical photos being displayed.
  • Glad I made the effort on a chilly Sunday morning 😊
  • Good galleries though not many. Great service.
  • It's interesting to be able to find odd news articles about Australia's past. It is also a good starting point to research Canberra's history, or your own.
