Attractions near the Best Western Motel Monaro
Seek out Canberra’s creative streak
Although the motel is only a short drive from many of the big attractions in Canberra, there is so much to see close by that there’s no need to venture too far. The Old Bus Depot Markets in Kingston run every Sunday and showcase Canberra’s creative and culinary side.
Hand-made jewellery, homemade gourmet foods, crafts and collectables are just some of the wares on sale. A multicultural food hall serves up a mouth-watering variety of yummy treats, from Spanish gourmet omelettes and paella to Laotian yellow curry and Ethiopian spiced samosas. With so much variety, it's easy to spend an entire day fossicking through the stalls.
Go walkabout in the Wetlands
Located on the eastern end of Lake Burley Griffin, only a short distance from the motel is one of the most valuable wetland habitats in the Australian Capital Territory, Jerrabomberra Wetlands Nature Reserve. Located on the flood plain of the Molonglo River, the Wetlands Nature Reserve is a rich and fertile landscape.
Now a major refuge for birds migrating from the Northern Hemisphere and inland Australia, the Wetlands Nature Reserve is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city to connect with nature. Take a stroll along one of the many walking tracks to explore this unique habitat or discover its Aboriginal history on a self-guided walking tour.
