If you feel like you are stuck in a routine lifestyle, then it’s time for a change. You need to go on vacation and put all the things that are causing you stress aside. More importantly, you need to find a location where all worries fade into the wind, and then fill your ears with the sound of laughter in the streets, where the smell of fresh coffee fills your mornings and where you can meet friendly people who will exchange their interesting stories over a pint of beer with you. The place we are talking about is Canberra, Australia’s finest jewel.

Here are some of the reasons why we think you need to experience this must-visit destination.

1. The finer things in life
If you’re a fan of the fine arts then we highly recommend visiting the Canberra Theatre Centre. The repertoire is always packed with interesting plays and performances from both local and foreign performers. Therefore, make sure to check out all the upcoming shows if you plan to visit this amazing theatre. And if you want to experience something more down to earth and contemporary, we suggest attending a show at the Street Theatre. There you will get a chance to see the work of Canberra’s local screenwriters. Furthermore, if you want to listen to some local bands performing their music, you can visit the Transit Bar, the Basement, or the Dock.

2. Experiencing the city
If you are experiencing the city for the first time, or even if you are visiting again, then the most important thing you need to do is to see the whole city and get to know it better. And what better way to do so than by air. Hot air balloon rides are an absolute hit in Canberra. Therefore, invite your friends, book a balloon and enjoy the breathtaking view of the city and all of its beauty. If you want a more affordable option you can go for a Canberra city bus tour. This is an efficient way to drive through town and enjoy all of its attractions up close. You can also hire a tourist guide who knows all of the town’s hidden spots so you will have an opportunity to find some intimate restaurants and cafes as well. If you want to book the best and most affordable tours and go driving through the city, we recommend opting for an extraordinary and affordable bus charter.

3. Where and what to eat
Canberra certainly has some of the highest quality restaurants and cafes. This means that you won’t be disappointed with the food there. For example, you can enjoy a nice gourmet evening at the Akiba restaurant. Here you can sample some traditional Asian dishes mixed with some modern western cuisines. Aubergine is another famous restaurant in Canberra which we recommend visiting. It’s always busy and packed with guests looking for that unique fine dining experience that only this place can offer. Excite your taste buds and visit some of the most amazing restaurants in Canberra.

4. Beer tours
If you want to experience some local brews and exchange some hearty stories with the locals we recommend participating in Dave’s Brewery tour. Here you can get a chance to taste top quality brews and grab a snack to eat as well. You will also get a chance to see where and how the beer is made and talk with the brewers. Some of them are also willing to share their brewing knowledge if you are interested in trying to brew yourself.

As we can see, there are numerous fun and exciting attractions to see at this wonderful place. Pack your bags and get ready to experience an unforgettable vacation in Canberra, Australia.
