A planned city with streets laid out in elaborate, geometric patterns and founded specifically to serve as the capital of the emerging Australian state, Canberra has a self-sufficient atmosphere.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Australian War Memorial. Step out of the city life by going to Yarrangobilly Caves and Pierces Creek Forest. Your inner history buff will appreciate Lanyon Homestead and St Christopher's Cathedral. Get out of town with these interesting Canberra side-trips: Pooh Bear's Corner (in Monga), Wisbey's Orchards (in Araluen) and Christmas Barn at Bredbo (in Bredbo). There's more to do: explore the striking landscape of The Big Hole, Deua National Park and admire the engineering at Corin Dam.

For other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Canberra day trip website .

In September, daily temperatures in Canberra can reach 20°C, while at night they dip to 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
