Summer in Canberra for Families

Explore Canberra like a local and create great family memories these school holidays in Canberra. See a new exhibition, enjoy Canberra’s great outdoor spaces and explore national attractions.

Chill out this summer at one of the city’s many attractions such as the National Zoo & Aquarium, the Australian Institute of Sport and the Australian National Botanic Gardens. Check out the school holidays and family activities on offer around the city.

Experience art, culture and history with this season’s exhibitions including The Popular Pet Show at the National Portrait Gallery, A History of the World in 100 Objects from the British Museum at the National Museum of Australia and Versailles: Treasures from the Palace at the National Gallery of Australia.

Kids will love The Pod Playground at the National Arboretum Canberra and the Discovery Playground at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve.  Enjoy bushwalking in the Sanctuary wetlands, see if you can spot the resident platypus or koalas and enjoy lunch at one of the scenic picnic spots.

After all that adventuring, you’ll be glad of a comfortable place to relax at the end of the day.  Crowne Plaza Canberra’s spacious and quiet guest rooms, leisure facilities and generous buffet breakfast helps to restore your energy for another busy day! The hotel’s tranquil park setting in Canberra’s CBD means you are only steps away from Canberra’s main shopping centre, cafes, movies and more.
