About the area:
Canberra, the urban center of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), is a thriving modern city with stylish restaurants, hip bars, boutique shopping, fun for the kids and a busy calendar of events and festivals. The surrounding rural areas and stretches of natural bushland are home to charming rural townships, award-winning wineries, beautiful coastlines and the famous Snowy Mountains.
Namadgi National Park at the northern end of the Australian Alps, is perfect for a picnic or bushwalk on the numerous marked trails, or to experience native flora and fauna and enjoy spectacular wildflowers in spring. The Indigenous rock art and Aboriginal shelters are easily accessible. Camping is possible in pleasant bushland settings with fishing and horse riding permitted in designated areas.
