Are you ready to hit the road and visit the Capital Territory, but not sure on where to start? We’ve got you covered! This week on our ‘Holiday Here This Year Summer Road Trip’ series, we have compiled feedback from Jayco fans across the country and their top tips on what not to miss.

The Bush Capital

Surrounded by stunning nature reserves, the Capital Territory is an excellent location for an outdoors adventure. Did you know that over half of the land is dedicated to national parks and nature reserves? Each spot is unique and offers great opportunities for spotting some of Australia’s unique flora and fauna.

Check out the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, located just south of Canberra’s city centre for incredible bush walking and plenty of nature to see. Here you can see kangaroos, emus, koalas, emus and even platypus and reptile species.

If you’re looking for a flower-filled spectacle, be sure to visit during Floriade, Canberra’s annual flower and entertainment festival held in Commonwealth Park. The show features many different flower displays and is free for all to attend. A true celebration of spring, the show also features talks, workshops and activities for all the family to enjoy.

Go Coastal

Said to possess the whitest sand in the world, Jervis Bay is not to be missed. The clear turquoise waters are also amongst the safest and most beautiful in the world. Thanks to numerous great camping spots to park up in, there are plenty of reasons to extend your stay. Don’t forget to check out the whales on their annual migration offshore from June to November.

For another water-based adventure, check out Lake Burley Griffin, a stunning spot to be enjoyed on a kayak or stand-up paddle-boarding, a hugely popular sport for Canberra residents. Kayaks can also be rented via the Paddle Hub on the lake shore to get you started.

Inner-city Culture

Head into town to check out Canberra’s excellent dining and culture scenes – located all over town. Don’t miss independent spots such as the BentSpoke Brewing Company, offering a range of beers and ciders all brewed on site and served alongside great classic pub fare.=

If you’re interested in checking out the art scene, head to the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra’s historical heart. Located alongside Parliament House, a stroll around the grounds also gives a look-in on the governmental precinct.
