Canberra has so much to see and do. Being the capital of Australia,
you will find the National Museum and National Art Gallery, along with
Parliament House. With so many options for day trips, hire a car! The

Once you've done the city itself justice then there are plenty of great destinations within a day trip of Canberra, especially if you've hired a rental car. A drive to Goulburn or Cooma provides a great place to stop and have lunch with eclectic, interesting shops to explore.

Why not travel through the Southern Highlands, or the district of Goulburn? Don't miss the mysterious Lake George or the wool capital of Australia.
Wine, Roses and all that Jazz is a celebratory festival that honours the art of the grape in Canberra. It spans two days from November 7 to November 8 and is a great opportunity to get out to one of 25 local wineries and businesses to sample their wares. Be sure to designate a driver for your rental car and ensure they are covered by the insurance that you've taken out with your hire.

Since the Government works for its citizens that makes you the boss! In a way, so make yourself at home in Canberra.
If you're planning on touring Australia in a hire car it's important
to bear in mind that distances between cities are vastly different here
than they are in most of Europe and Asia. The Nation's Capital city,
Canberra, for example is 300km from Sydney and some 650km from
Melbourne. So plan your trip well and consider flying from one location
to another and picking up your hire car from the airport in each
