The purpose built capital city of Canberra is located in the Australian Capital Territory in the south east of New South Wales and is a planned city, with all the national monuments, museums and galleries centred round the large manmade lakes. Canberra is a lovely city to experience the outdoors, with recreational activities such as hiking, cycling and bush walking round areas of natural beauty including the gardens, parks and nature reserves. There are a plethora of museums and galleries to visit and they are housed in unique buildings such as embassies and parliament buildings and you can even take a tour round the Royal Australian Mint. In addition to the informative museums, there are two first hand buildings, Blundell’s Cottage and Calthorpe’s House, that have stood since the days of the initial settlers and are well worth a visit. Fantastic views of the city can be achieved by hiking up the many hills on offer, however for something different make sure to visit the Black Tower. Standing 195m above the summit of Black Mountain, the Black Tower features a revolving restaurant and quaint souvenir shop, but more importantly boasts breath taking panoramic views day or night. When you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the inner city, travel to the surrounding areas and take your time exploring the wonderful retreats such as the picturesque Tharwa Village, the Lanyon Homestead and the scenic Namadgi National Park.
