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.
On the 28th (Fri), see the interesting displays at Old Parliament House, explore the world behind art at National Portrait Gallery, and then take in nature's colorful creations at National Arboretum Canberra. Here are some ideas for day two: get a sense of history and politics at Royal Australian Mint, then admire the landmark architecture of National Museum of Australia, and then take an in-depth tour of Australian War Memorial.

To find reviews, ratings, photos, and tourist information, go to the Canberra attractions planner.
