Flights to Canberra
What to know before you fly to Canberra?
A trip to Canberra is the perfect way to learn about the history, culture and political roots of Australia in a new and interesting destination. There are countless cultural and historical sites that promise to educate, entertain and inspire including the Australian War Memorial, the National Gallery of Australia, the Museum of Australian Democracy and of course, Parliament House.
Another one of Canberra's best assets is the natural environment which surrounds it. Within close proximity to the city are several national parks with plenty of great spots for picnics and swimming, as well as numerous hiking trails. Bush walkers will love the seven kilometre trail from Kambah Pool to Pine Island, with the picturesque Red Rock Gorge half way along offering the perfect place for a quick swim. Canberra is also just a two and a half hour drive from the ski fields of Thredbo.
