Canberra, Australia Cruise Port

Australia’s largest inland city and eighth largest city overall, Canberra is Australia’s capital as well as its seat of government. As the seat, Canberra is home to the Parliament House, the Governor-General’s residence, and the High Court, as well as smaller government agency buildings. Like many capitals, it’s also the site of various social and cultural institutions of national significance, such as museums, art galleries, the mint, pristine colleges, and the national library. Since it was a planned city, the streets and districts were mapped out in advanced around the preexisting rivers which would go on to act as unofficial boundaries. The architect, American Walter Burley Griffin, designed the streets and buildings with numerous geometrical shapes and patterns which stand out over most city grids. Many of Australia’s major television and radio stations broadcast out of Canberra, and a number of newspapers and magazines are printed and distributed within the city.

 

  • Visit and appreciate the Australian War Memorial which combines a remembrance shrine, a world-class museum, and an archive to pay homage to natives who died in wars.
     
  • Learn about the nation’s rich history within one of Australia’s most loved buildings which houses the Museum of Australian Democracy, a reflective institution located beside Parliament that explores the country’s past, present, and future.
     
  • Named after the city’s master architect, Lake Burley Griffin is located on the city’s eastern side and is a perfect, picturesque lake for walking, jogging, or biking around.
