The actual building completion was not until the 1960s.
It is a garden city and because of its lay-out the city
never feels crowded.
The city boasts of not
only the old and current parliament buildings but also
museums, Australian Institute of Sports, Australian War
Memorial, National Zoo and the National Art Gallery.
Some of the must see and dos is the Floriade, Parliament
House tours, Australian Botanical Gardens and Lake
Burley Griffen boating or biking.
Accommodation is varied from hotels, apartments to even
camping in the bushland outside of the city. The climate
is New South Wales climate - warm to hot in summer
months and cool to cold during winter. Most visitors fly
into Sydney with an easy drive to Canberra.
