There will be no mention of the 'virus' in this blog! Everyone knows to check for special entry conditions anywhere they go.

Canberra, the capital city of Australia is a great destination for Easter.  Four days is the perfect length of time to stay and do the sights and Easter is a terrific time for events and good weather. We have included heaps of links in the blog so you can plan your getaway and not miss a thing!  It will be busy, but so so worth it.

The newly rebuilt award-winning Canberra airport is where you will pick up your car and start your Canberra experience. There is a lot of accommodation options from budget to top-end luxury, what you will find is that accommodation is very good value as long as you book a week or 2 in advance,  maybe a little more for Easter.

Top sights

Icons - These are the must-visit sites, but you're going to have more time than just these so tick off what else interests you and you'll be able to put together an itinerary.  It's good to start by going to Mount Ainslie and orientating yourself.
