The capital city of the ACT (Australian Capital Territory), Canberra’s attraction is often understated and misjudged by other Australians, particularly those from Sydney and Melbourne. It’s true that Canberra does not quite compare to the cosmopolitan aspects of these two larger cities, but its beauty comes from its quiet charm and lush surroundings. Home to the Australian Parliament, Canberra’s sights include some of the nation’s best historic treasures. Visitors to Canberra will gain a deeper understanding of Australian culture by visiting the city’s national establishments such as the beautifully preserved Old Parliament House, the (new) Parliament House with its modern architecture, the National Museum of Australia which houses more than a few controversial exhibits, and the largest art gallery in the country, the National Gallery of Australia. The grand architecture in most buildings in Canberra can also be found in some of the hotels in the city. There are many options for accommodation in Canberra but highly recommended is the newly opened boutique hotel, Diamant Hotel. Budget accommodation in Canberra varies from motels to backpacker hostels to caravan parks.
