Everyone of us once in life wanted to visit Australia and it's capital Canberra. At first sight you might think that it is very expensive, but still you can find cheap vacations to Canberra.
Canberra, the capital city of Australia, is one of the world's greatest examples of urban planning and landscape architecture. Canberra offers a range of accommodation including five star hotels, apartments and motels. Canberra boasts famous national landmarks like parliament house, Canberra war memorial, national gallery and museum. Canberra has a lively cultural program hosting the famous Floriade flower festival, National Folk Festival, Rally of Canberra, The Royal Canberra Show and much more.
Canberra is often described by Australians who haven't been there as a boring town, full of politicians, bureaucrats - and not much else. But those who go there find a picturesque spot with beautiful galleries and museums, as well as excellent restaurants, bars and cafes.
One of only two capital cities in the world that have been built to a premeditated design, Canberra is rather eerily symmetrical. Placed about its nice, planned combinations of straight and curving streets are the old and new Parliament Houses, the National Gallery, and the National Museum.
