Canberra Australia Urban Rest Serviced Apartments

Welcome to Canberra

Canberra, the capital city of Australia, has an interesting history. When it was time for Australia to choose a capital city, there was fierce competition between Sydney and Melbourne. In 1909, Australians ultimately decided to make Canberra the capital city because of its location at the midpoint between Sydney and Melbourne.

Today, Canberra is one of the most livable cities in the world, thanks in part to its entirely planned layout. The city's public transportation system is one of the best in Australia, making it easy to get around. Canberra is home to Parliament House, national monuments, museums, and galleries all built around a large artificial lake. Canberra also boasts beautiful natural surroundings, including mountain ranges, cycling paths, gardens, parks, bushwalking trails, and nature reserves. In fact, Canberra is the most sustainable city in the world, with 100% renewable energy powering the city.

Visitors to Canberra will find a wide range of cultural attractions. The city is home to 12 of Australia's most iconic cultural attractions, including museums and galleries. For example, the National Gallery of Australia has the largest collection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, while the Australian War Memorial and the National Library of Australia are also popular tourist destinations.

Canberra is a great place for nature lovers, with plenty of opportunities to reconnect with the great outdoors. Visitors can enjoy the Tibinbilla Nature Reserve, where they can spot native Australian animals such as koalas, platypuses, kangaroos, emus, and wombats. For scenic views over the city, visitors can take a walk up Mount Ainslie, Mount Painter, or Black Mountain. Canberra changes with the seasons, so visitors can enjoy the beautiful cityscape marked with hues of red, gold, and crimson in autumn, delicate cherry blossoms in the spring, and even snowfall in the winter.

In addition to natural beauty and cultural attractions, Canberra is also known for its great wine, beer, and restaurants. The cool wine regions offer excellent wine-tasting experiences, fine dining, and truffle hunting. Braddon is the perfect place for foodies, with plenty of outstanding cafes, bakeries, restaurants, and bars.
