  • So much to learn here. I would definitely recommend going on the guided tour but be aware the tour staff never know when Titan will tip. Our son loved the activity booklet and it was a great way for him to learn about our history and money.
  • Interesting to see the process of producing money. Good observation areas for different stages of production. Has alot of information throughout the building to keep everyone busy and also they usually have activities for kids.
  • A great way to spend a few hours of you are interested in coins and the history. It's open to visitors on a daily basis and even a couple of tours/talks are offered - all free. Upstairs is a very interesting display of coin designs from the famous gold and silversmith Stuart Devlin. At the end the gallery allows you to look into the factory through the windows and watch the process of the coinage. Everything about the processes is explained and displayed in detail on several computer screens. Gift shop and cafĂ© available on the ground floor. Well done.
  • Great place. Kids get an activity book which helps them go around and discover for themselves. It is free entrance so very afforable for families. Worth going inbetween other activities spent 1.5 hrs here.
  • Obviously Good place to get a range of coins. Interesting manufacturing and great to see Aussie technology in manufacturing that is still here

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.
