Famously formed as a result of a compromise between Sydney and Melbourne, both of which vigorously sought the honour, Canberra is Australia’s capital city. Located on the northern end of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) the planned city has evolved into the seat of the Australian government, hosting parliament, the high court and a number of related government department and agencies. A city heavily influenced by the ‘Garden City Movement’ Canberra has earned itself the nickname the ‘Bush Capital’ on account of its numerous acres of natural vegetation. A pleasant place for culture vultures to visit, Canberra houses a range of culturally significant institutions like the Australian War Memorial, Australian National University, Australian Institute of Sport, National Gallery, National Museum and the National Library. Also known as a good spot for hiking Canberra is very much an outdoor city with many walking paths, horse and mountain bike trails to enjoy.
As you would expect from any country’s capital city there is a good range and standard of hotels in Canberra. If you are planning to visit the area and will be needing to book overnight accommodation you might want to familiarise yourself with this list of Ten of Canberra’s Most Noted Hotels.
