Locations near Canberra -

Canberra is about open space. It may be the nation's capital, but the traffic is still calm enough to hire a bike and ride around the wide, flat streets of the city without any worries.
At weekends, locals and visitors head towards the parklands surrounding Lake Walter Burley Griffin. Here you can hire bikes and ride around the wide circumference, or go for walks along the well-marked bush and parkland trails. The lake itself comes alive with hire boats.

The multiculturalism of Canberra's restaurants has grown in recent years, with the food reflective not only of migration from diverse parts of the world, but also the vast array of international embassies and consulates in the city. But while the recipes might be international, the produce that goes into them is from just down the road.

Canberra puts on a show of its local produce at the Old Bus Depot Markets on Sundays. Wentworth Avenue in Kingston is turned over to a multitude of crafts and old wares as well as fruit, vegetables and everything from pasta and satay sauces to cheeses and preserves.

Afterwards, nip into one of the quiet achievers on the Canberra food shop scene, Kim's Groceries in Civic Square, to get the best of Asian food all in one tiny spot.

Those in the know also enjoy the local wines. Just outside Canberra you'll find award-winning cold-climate wineries that are quietly notching their way up the international scene. Lark Hill at Bungendore, for example, has won awards for its riesling, chardonnay, pinot noir and cabernet merlot.
