  • A nice place to stop on our bike ride around the lake. Lego for the kids to play with and some fascinating information about Canberra.
  • It's is now the tourist information center. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Public bathrooms and small cafe available on site. Nice view of the lake and of the city.
  • Should visit first when visiting Canberra , It tells you the story of how Canberra came to be. An hour or so well spent.
  • I was quite surprised with this little out of the way museum. It was interesting to see the other entries for the design of Canberra and the kids area is filled with lego! That of course my kid loves.
  • Beautiful centre with a lot to show, ready to engage all ages and all members of the family

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.
