Many of the public buildings display some of Australia's most innovative architecture including those housing our major, and most impressive, national attractions.
Canberra, while quite a business like style of destination, can also be a wonderful and interesting stopover holiday destination, worth a 2 day visit. It is especially interesting destination for families, where kids can enjoy the many historical museums that document much of Australia's federation history.
