The national capital and its centre of parliament provide an elegant, tranquil setting that is characterised by landmark natural and built structures.

The splendour of Lake Burley Griffin, with its neighbouring National Gallery of Australia, other world-class museums, and a burgeoning food, wine and coffee-lovers’ scene, provide the makings for a weekend filled with the fine art of relaxation.

You can take to the skies in a range of breathtaking hot air ballooning experiences to capture the sunrise magic of Canberra’s serene location and abundant national parkland.

Indulge in a spot of retail therapy with the designer labels on offer at the Canberra Centre.

Or you could simply sit, back, relax and soak up the surroundings at a range of luxurious accommodation options with great deals offered at Hotels.com.

This luxurious five-star hotel, part of the Park Hyatt group, provides a sprawling, perfectly manicured setting and the city’s finest offerings in food, wine and full-service day spa treatments.

  • I would love to be able to relax. Sadly, I’m an anxious person by nature. I planned to sleep in this morning. Woke up with a start, jumped out of bed and got dressed……all by 7.30! What a sleep in……..NOT


  • It would be wonderful to have a weekend there!


  • Looks amazing, but Canberra doesn’t appeal to me


  • This looks really beautiful ! Sure would like to make a trip to the nations capital. I’ve never been there so wouldn’t know where to stay, but a beautiful atmosphere and wonderful styled room can sure help to relax


  • I’ve never been to Canberra but would love to go. Staying somewhere over looking Lake Burley Griffin would be awesome!


  • I’ve only been to Canberra once but I loved it. Would love to go back. What I wouldn’t do for a holiday at the moment.


  • Canberra is one of my favourite cities to visit; so much to see and do. These accommodation suggestions are great.


  • Those hotels look like they would be lovely to have a nice relaxing weekend away in!


  • Canberra can have its nice Hotels to stay in. The Hyatt is the Best and indeed especially for “High Tea” which is one of my favourite things to go to with my daughters.


  • I have a great friend I’d love to visit wouldn’t matter where I stayed.


  • Where you sleep isn’t the problem in Canberra. It is where you will find some food to eat. It is so hard to find the shopping centres and food outlets and you can’t stop on the side of a road to look one up either.


  • I went to Canberra last year sadly for only one day. We stayed at Pinnacle Apartments. It was really lovely there and would love to stay there again. However the Hyatt looks so breathtakingly beautiful.


  • The Hyatt looks inviting. I’ve never been to Canberra so anywhere would do…as long as it had sufficient heating :-)


  • I have seen so many cosy little accommodation spots in the Adelaide Hills lately that I would love to try out! Open fire places, wine, nature walks and wineries close by… ahhhhh


  • I’d love to stay at the Hyatt Hotel and have their High Tea as well
