Canberra has come third in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2018 list. That’s the highest position any Australian city has ever placed in the 13 years of the awards. And it’s easy to see why. 

“Criminally overlooked Canberra packs a big punch for such a small city. National treasures are found round almost every corner and exciting new boutique precincts have emerged, bulging with gastronomic highlights and cultural must-dos.” That’s what Lonely Planet thinks, and we agree.
Canberra has trumped Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to be ranked within the top three of Lonely Planet’s Best Cities to Visit in 2018 – ranking higher than any Australian city has ever been ranked before in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel guide. 

Come and explore Canberra’s award-winning destination, where outdoor adventures are only moments away from stunning cultural attractions – start your day with a serene hot air balloon soaring high above the city and end with a drink at one of Australia’s best bars. It's so easy to experience one good thing after another in Canberra.

Canberra, the national capital is home to many events throughout the year including Floriade, Summernats, National Folk Festival, National Multicultural Festival, Enlighten and many more. Canberra also hosts important national events such as Anzac Day, as well as significant annual festivals including the Canberra Balloon Spectacular. These major drawcards bring thousands of people to Canberra every year.

Blockbuster art and culture events entice many visitors to Canberra’s national attractions each year. Plus Canberra hosts world-class sport, including cricket, AFL, rugby league and rugby union. Any of these events provide a terrific reason to visit the nation’s capital.
