What’s new and different about Canberra?

Canberra is the Capital of Australia and in the language of the first nation’s people, the Ngunnawal means “Meeting Place”.  With the nation’s Parliament House a centrepiece – imposing to look at but one of the few political centres that you can wine and dine and wander its corridors on a tour or have the prime minister’s chef show you how to make a souffle. With the ability to then walk or an easy drive between national institutions like the national gallery of Australia, the National Museum of Australia, The Australian War Memorial means your delegates can learn more about the Australian story in a relaxed way. Since your last visit, there has been more activation around the lake with urbanisation providing a vibe for wine bars, coffee shops, cafes and restaurants, markets and more on lake transport. The light rail is underway connecting the town centres and lifting the inner city feel. With more hatted restaurants per capita than any other city in Australia, Canberra will give you many options to choose from for breakaway groups as well as the ability to cater for larger groups of over 2,400 delegates. Although Canberra is a capital city, it is home to only 472,000 people (7.94% of the population of Singapore), meaning you have access to all a capital city offers without the congestion of the larger cities. It also means you can drive to the regional areas with ease offering wineries, activities like ziplining, hiking or skiing. The green spaces and fresh, clean air with easy access to high viewing spots around the city makes for some spectacular sunsets and a memorable experience for your delegates with the ability to gain knowledge, experience the Australian culture and feel the influence of the nation’s capital city.
