Pre and Post Cruise Visits to Canberra


Experience one good thing after another when you visit Canberra, Australia’s capital, a mere 40 minutes flying time from Sydney. 

Whether it’s indulging in world-class food and wine, adventuring in the breathtaking outdoors or immersing themselves in the stories of Australia at iconic attractions, everything cruise guests are after is just moments away in the capital.

ACT visitors can uncover Australia’s most important national treasures and learn the secrets of the Australian way of life at world-class galleries and museums.

Adventurous travellers can soar above the capital in a hot air balloon or venture into nearby national parks to get up close and personal with native Australian wildlife.

Indulging in some retail therapy is essential. Shoppers can pick up unique Australian made souvenirs at a range of flourishing weekend markets, shopping malls and boutiques.

Foodies can refuel at an eclectic mix of cafes and restaurants in Canberra’s new precincts of Braddon, New Acton and the Kingston Foreshore. Wine lovers can spend the day sampling the region’s award-winning cool climate wines at more than 30 cellar doors.

Canberra’s jam-packed calendar of events also offers an eclectic mix of activities suitable for the whole family.
