Rotary Aussie Peace Walk




The Canberra area has a human history dating back over 30,000 years. 

It is Australia’s Capital City, a unique city that feels like a ‘big country town’. 

This is our story…


Canberra is home to many ‘must-see’ national attractions. The Australian War Memorial, Questacon National Science & Technology Centre, The National Gallery, The Australian Mint and much more.

Things To Do

We know Canberra as the Bush Capital and with good reason. There are many parks, gardens and bush tracks to explore.

Hire a bike, get about on a Segway, take a boat tour on the lake.

How about a winery tour? or a Brewery tour? Canberra has something for everyone. 


Choose an apartment, motel or hotel. Find accommodation to suit your budget and lifestyle.
