Sydney to Canberra Day Trip


I am looking for a day trip from Sydney to Canberra in this Easter.

Please suggest some value-for-money options.

    So literally one day? Or a couple of days?

    Can recommend Old Parliament House, Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial (it's incredibly good). Then stuff like Questacon if you have kids, the National Museum, the Portrait Gallery.

    Up to Telstra Tower for some photos.

    The bird place near cockington green is pretty good for kids. But you need more than 1 day.

    The penis owl in Belconnen is a sight to behold. Check out Charnwood for some local culture, you won’t be disappointed.

  • Commonwealth Park is nice

  • war memorial
    mt ainslie lookout
    parliament house (old and new)
    national museum
    national gallery
    Royal Mint

    not sure if some of these are open in weekends/public holidays

  • You will definitely need more than one day if you want to see more than one thing properly.

    Questacon is perfect if you are bringing kids. It'll tire them out too so they will have a snooze on the ride home.

    Lots of good food and craft beer/wine places if you are into that as well.
