Sydney may be Australia’s biggest city, but Canberra holds the title of national capital and political heart. And you don’t have to choose between the two—Canberra’s historic center is compact enough to explore on a day tour from Sydney. Here’s how. 

Highlights
  • Enjoy panoramic views of Canberra and Lake Burley Griffin from the summit of Mt. Ainslie.
  • Learn more about Australia’s war history and ANZAC troops with a tour of the Australian War Memorial.
  • Visit the Parliament House and see The Lodge, the Prime Minister's residence in Canberra.
  • Browse the exhibitions at the National Gallery of Australia, the National Library, or the National Portrait Gallery.

Things to Know 
  • Canberra is about 174 miles (280 kilometers) southwest of Sydney, a journey of about three hours by road.
  • Day tours from Sydney typically last between 12 and 13 hours, so prepare for a long excursion.
  • Be sure to bring your camera, comfortable walking shoes, and water and snacks for the journey. Some tours may include meals or time to stop for lunch independently.
  • Some tours include hotel pickup and entrance fees to top attractions such as the Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial, and the National Museum of Australia.
