Canberra highlights

From wining and dining, to arts and culture, outdoor activities and family fun, Canberra provides a varied experience for every visitor. Named number three on Lonely Planet’s list of best cities to visit in 2018, there are major events happening throughout the year. With the conference venue set in the heart of Canberra’s cultural precinct, you won’t have to go far to find something to see and do.

As the ANZCA conference is held during the ski season, for those who love snow sports it is an ideal opportunity to combine work and play. Canberra is situated only three hours’ drive from the Snowy Mountains. Its four unique ski resorts, PerisherThredboCharlotte Pass and Selywn Snow Resort, cater to all types of adventure.

In addition to details of gallery exhibitions, markets and cultural events (and more!) the Visit Canberra website provides information on full- and half-day tours of the city and surrounding region, including hot air balloon flights and vineyard and brewery tours. And if you’re looking for restaurant recommendations or nightlife listings, Out in Canberra is the definitive source of what’s on in the capital.
