Capital Country

Capital Country is one of the oldest established areas in the country; this region combines the vitality and energy of Canberra with the tranquility of an established rural landscape.

Close to Sydney and wrapped around Canberra; it is set in one of Australia’s handsomest landscapes, a fascinating mix of heritage towns and villages, stunning country gardens and beautiful waterways.

This is a place to revel in, to revisit the past and refresh the spirit.

You’ll delight in tasting local fare, making the most of scenic walks, exploring caves, visiting galleries, helping out on a working farm, mixing with the locals, discovering early colonial buildings and spring gardens.

One of the highlights of this area are the magnificent gardens that come in all shapes and sizes, from a few hanging baskets of bloom to acres of landscaped gardens with many open to the public.

There is always something around the corner to surprise you at Capital Country – an interesting little road, a glorious garden, a delightful little restaurant or an exquisite antique shop.

Canberra itself is packed with national landmarks and the city boasts a lively cultural calendar and is abundant with great restaurants and cafes. A short drive away you’ll find quaint colonial villages and some of Australia’s most fertile farming country. There are orchards, wineries, and renowned wool and cattle properties.

So, visit Capital Country and enjoy a breath of fresh air.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
