Luxury, Romantic and Boutique Accommodation in Canberra and Surrounds

There's much more to the nation's capital than politics and Lake Burley Griffin.

Discover a different side to the nation’s capital with boutique accommodation in Canberra

Canberra might have been the butt of jokes in the past, but things are changing in the nation's capital. Canberra is on the rise, and is gathering the kind of hotspot status usually reserved for much larger cities. Think a collection of unique hotels, a growing reputation for amazing eats and a non-stop events calendar.

When it comes to booking accommodation in Canberra, banish all thoughts of boring abodes designed for politicians: Canberra’s boutique hotel scene is one of the most exciting in the country. For a memorable couples’ retreat in Canberra, how about waking up next to a lion or bear? No, we’re not talking about your partner, but rather the fascinating creatures that call Jamala Wildlife Lodge home. Book a suite at a five-star hotel in Canberra’s National Zoo and Aquarium for a romantic getaway you’ll never forget.

For contemporary Canberra accommodation in the heart of the city, check in to a serviced apartment with all the comforts of home, conveniently located within easy reach of the capital’s star attractions.

Mad for museums and galleries? Wander King Edward Terrace and cross off all the big ones in one go – National Library of Australia, Questacon, National Portrait Gallery and National Gallery of Australia. Step back in time at Old Parliament House, then wander up to Capital Hill to see if you can catch Australia's pollies in action during Question Time.

Sports nuts can visit the Australian Institute of Sport and watch the country’s elite athletes go through their paces. When you’re in need of sustenance, flip a coin to decide whether you’ll dine at an upscale restaurant, laid-back café or a cellar door eatery. Wander along the vibrant dining strip of Braddon, find out what’s hot in the cultural precinct of New Acton, or enjoy a bite to eat overlooking Lake Burley Griffith on the Kingston foreshore. There’s never been a better time to book a weekend getaway in Canberra.
