Boutique Getaways in Canberra & ACT
They say that good things come in small packages, and this is certainly true of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). With over half of its total area preserved as parks and reserves, the ACT is a true haven for nature lovers. It is also home to Canberra, Australia’s capital city, which is the perfect base from which to experience the stunning natural surroundings. Whilst in Canberra, check out the many galleries, museums, libraries and memorials to get a well-rounded overview of Australian history, from ancient times to the present.

Surrounded by the Great Dividing Range to the east and the foot of the Australian Alps to the west, the ACT is enclaved within the south east of New South Wales. The territory was established in 1908 for the sole purpose of housing the nation’s capital, Canberra.
Canberra is Australia’s largest inland city and one of the few planned cities in the world. The result is a beautifully laid-out city with wide streets, expansive public areas and green leafy surrounds. Although relatively small, Canberra is a thriving city with stylish restaurants, hip bars, boutique shopping, great outdoor recreation and a busy calendar of annual events and festivals. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, luxury escape, or city weekend getaway.
If you have a little longer on your holiday, venture out of Canberra to discover the gorgeous surroundings nearby.

You can also view incredible Indigenous rock art and learn about Australia’s rich Indigenous heritage.
Also, only 45 minutes from the city is Namadgi National Park, which is located at the northern end of the Australian Alps. Here you can enjoy a picnic or bush walk along one of the many walking trails or delight in the stunning wildflowers during spring.
