Hotels in Canberra

Australia’s capital city is a purpose built masterpiece where art galleries, museums and monuments cluster around glistening man-made lakes. Canberra has the bush right on its doorstep, so if you get bored of the cultural attractions and vibrant nightlife there are plenty of opportunities for adventure.

Most of the accommodation and main attractions in Canberra are north of Lake Burley Griffin, in the city centre. This is where the Australian War Memorial, National Museum of Austria, and Australian National Botanic Gardens can be found. By night you’ll find plenty of nightlife, from highbrow theatres and wine bars to buzzing pubs and casinos.  Hotels in this area are understandably popular, and room rates can be quite high. Budget accommodation can be found along Northbourne Avenue and in the O’Connor neighbourhood.

Canberra is understandably popular with business men and visiting dignitaries, so there are plenty of high quality hotels to choose from. Most international chains have a base in Canberra, but there are also plenty of independent boutique hotels offering great service on a smaller scale. Self catering apartments let you enjoy a home away from home, while comfy hostels offer a cheap and cheerful alternative to one of the city’s many luxury hotels.

Despite the careful planning that went into designing Canberra, the city wasn’t built with pedestrians in mind. Even if you’re staying in the city centre it’s a good idea to hire a car or rent a bicycle during your trip to see everything that the city has to offer.
