  • History to the present. What a wonderful tour guide we had. Amanda is wonderful, thank you. Such energy and lovely to hear someone speak with passion.
  • Fascinating journey through the minting of coins process... We spent a long time watching Titan (machine) maneovere massive drums of coins around the workshop floor. Great experience for kids.
  • It was good and interesting. It was great fun as I am only 10 years old. I loved it when I got to make my own coin. The gift shop was good too, but it disappointed me because there was no 2007 for the birth coins.
  • Great place to take the family. The kids really enjoyed the visit. I found the experience very informative. There is also large range of exhibits to view.
  • Always a fun day out at the mint. Highly recommended if you haven't been yet

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.
