Are you looking to rent a campervan from Canberra? If so you have chosen the right place. What is there to do in Canberra you may ask yourself, well you will be surprised, there is a lot more to do than you think. Canberra is the capital city of Australia and has a beautiful landscape, it is one of the colder major cities in Australia but there is still a nice temperate climate to enjoy. You will find a lot of various things to do and places to hook up your RV rental.
Are you worried that undertaking a campervan adventure in Canberra is going to restrict you from seeing the hot spots in this idyllic region? Worry not. There's lots to see and some of these attractions don't cost a cent, so that makes them doubly inviting. Take the kids. Or leave them behind with granny. Your call!
Start your exploratory journey at the National Museum of Australia where programs, projects and exhibitions await your inquisitive mind. Some galleries are permanent; others host traveling exhibits, so there's never a dull moment, even for folks who are not museum goers as a rule. There's no charge to visit, so have your fill of strolling about while learning about Australia's roots and people, and if your kids have spent too much time cooped up in your campervan of late, turn them loose here and let them indulge in fun activities designed especially for restless little ones.
There's no admission to enter and tour the Australian War Memorial , either. It's open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and between the Commemorative gallery and the Research Center, even your kids will develop a healthy respect for the heroes from Australia and New Zealand who fought bravely through both the First and Second World Wars. You'll like the Sculpture Garden for a tranquil respite. The kids will favor the Discovery Zone.
If you've had your fill of museums and you're sick of preparing meals in your campervan, how about treating the whole family to Canberra's wondrous universe of ethnic cuisine? You might wonder if any nation with a proper cooking history is missing from being represented since you'll find everything from Malaysian and Turkish cuisine to modern and traditional Aussie food. Bring your appetite. Try something new.
Would it surprise you to learn than Canberra is home to 140 vineyards and over 33 wineries? If you've an interest in viniculture (or just like drinking the fruits of the vine and discovering new wines), this industry won't disappoint. Get your hands on a copy of the Canberra District Wineries Guide, which has everything you need to learn about getting to various wineries and enjoying your stay. Riesling and Shiraz are area specialties and favourites of tourists and Canberra residents alike.
Did we save the best for last? We did if you're a sci-fi buff and you are still trying to sort out whether or not space explorers have dropped by for an Earthy look-see over the past years. The Tidbinbilla Tracking Station is your official headquarters for space artifacts that could convince you that your original hunch that ETs have made frequent visits, especially to Canberra was right all along.
