Yes, we know, Can­berra does get cold, es­pe­cially in the morn­ings and evenings, but it’s also renowned for beau­ti­fully clear win­ter skies, which means that it’s per­fect for ex­plor­ing out­side! The Aus­tralian Na­tional Botanic Gar­dens (anbg.­dens) are free to wan­der around and are a great place for lunch – don’t for­get to visit The

Red Cen­tre Gar­den and Rain­for­est Gully. For those want­ing to burn a few kilo­joules, you can hire bikes, kayaks and even Seg­ways to ex­plore Lake Bur­ley Grif­fin, or go one step fur­ther and hire a moun­tain bike to test your skills on Can­berra’s grow­ing trail sys­tem. To see Can­berra at a more leisurely pace, visit the Mount Ainslie look­out which of­fers near 360-de­gree views – from its height you’ll be able to see the clean lines and de­tailed plan­ning that has gone into this ar­chi­tect-de­signed city.
