Small Group Tours In Canberra – A Cultural Tour Of Canberra
There is absolutely no shortage of things to do and see in Canberra. Museums and galleries abound here so organising a small group tour to take in all of these is a tour in itself.
There is the Canberra Museum and Gallery, National Gallery of Australia, National Museum of Australia, Questacon, National Dinosaur Museum and National Portrait Gallery. You can also visit the National Library of Australia and the Australian War Memorial.
Then there is Parliament House itself which is always worth at least a drive by.
Small Group Tours In Canberra – Mount Ainslie And Other Parks And Lakes
From culture to nature and wildlife. You can spend at least a day touring these attractions too. Mount Ainslie is an 843 metre high hill in the Mt Ainslie Nature Reserve to the northeast of Canberra. It has a lookout and is one of the best places to view Canberra. You can walk, cycle or drive up to the lookout. It’s particularly impressive at sunset and sunrise.
Other attractions include Weston Park, the National Zoo and Aquarium, the Australian National Botanic Gardens, the National Arboretum Canberra, Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, Black Mountain Nature Reserve, Lake Ginninderra and of course Lake Burley Griffin. Both these lakes are man-made.
Small Group Tours In Canberra – Royal Australian Mint
One of the most popular tourist attractions in the National Capital, the Royal Australian Mint produces all the official coinage circulating in the Australian economy. It was opened in 1965. Tours of the mint operate daily and there is also a café and a shop for purchasing memorabilia.
Other Canberra attractions you might like to include in a tour of the Mint include the Telstra Tower with its observation decks and exhibitions. The National Carillon is a gift from the UK with 55 bronze bells. On the shores of Lake Burleigh Griffin, and actually in the water, is the Captain James Cook Memorial, commemorating the first landing in Australia.
Small Group Tours In Canberra – Australian Institute Of Sport
The Australian Institute of Sport is Australia’s major sports training centre. Most of Australia’s top athletes have trained here at some point in their careers. It also serves as an important research and development centre for sports related health issues.
Still on the topic of sports, you should also throw in a visit to Manuka Oval, one of the ACT’s premier sporting stadiums with a seating capacity of 13,550.
