Once Upon a Summer

in the Australian Capital Territory

Aussie summer may be synonymous with the coast, but there’s also a lot to love about Canberra. Our national capital is only small but it packs a mighty punch. With world-renowned museums, a vibrant dining scene and blissful nature just moments from the city, it’s the perfect summer spot for culture vultures, outdoor enthusiasts and foodies alike.

Here are our favorite things to do in Canberra, and a selection of beautiful homes right nearby.

Canberra

A destination unto itself, Canberra is one tiny place with a lot to offer. Take to the lake in an iconic paddle boat to see the sights while working up a hunger. Find shade – and charcuterie – beneath Northbourne Avenue’s heritage awnings. Experience nature just moments from the city at the National Arboretum. Swap snow domes for a far more highbrow souvenir from one of the many boutique galleries. Then wander home in a matter of minutes to your designer pad in the heart of the city.
