All about Canberra

When to visit

Following chilly and windy winters, spring brings welcome relief to Canberrans and large crowds of tourists due to one of the city’s largest festivals, Floriade—a month-long flower festival with vivid floral displays and illuminations. Despite its hot and dry weather, summer also draws in plenty of visitors with festivals, from the family-friendly fireworks of Skyfire to the rubber-burning mayhem of the Summernats car festival.

Getting around

Driving remains the easiest way to get around Canberra when sightseeing due to the city’s layout and limited local public transport timetables. Canberra’s bus network operates across the city, with its central station at the City Interchange on Alinga Street in Civic. A new light rail system also connects the Canberra city center with the showgrounds in the northern suburbs. Some areas of attractions are easily walkable, though, such as in Parkes and Kingston.

Traveler tips

If you’re after cocktails and a novel Canberra drinking experience, add the speakeasy Molly to your evening plans. To get there, follow the GPS coordinates 35°16’44.5″S+149°07’42.0″E, and don’t be discouraged if you find yourself in an unexciting back alley. Help your recovery the next day with a Canberra staple, Brodburger in Kingston, to see if you think their burgers are worth the hype—and the lines. (You can order ahead online.)
