Things To Do In Canberra

After a few weeks of living in Canberra you might get sick of going to Questacon every weekend (probably not though, because it's AWESOME). When that day comes, here are a few suggestions for activities to keep you happy and sane while you're in the ACT. 

Fun stuff

Apparently Questacon is advertised as an educational space, but we all know it as the MOST AMAZING FUN PLACE IN THE WORLD.

Hit up the only Mini Golf in Canberra!


There's an IKEA now! And a Costco! Woot!

Otherwise Canberra Centre is always good. 

Seasonal activities

Smell the roses at Floriade, Australia's "biggest celebration of spring".

Check out the fireworks spectacle over Lake Burley Griffin at Skyfire.

Bust a move at Grooving the Moo (ok, it's in Maitland, but that's close enough).

Touristy / Cultural Stuff

Check out the political heart of Australia at Parliament

Get your art-fix at the Portrait Gallery and the National Art Gallery
