Canberra Flights

You know that celebrity who’s gorgeous, has a Harvard degree and speaks four languages (Natalie Portman, where are you)? Canberra is kind of like that. The city is home to Australia’s best university, the national arboretum and plenty of world-class art and architecture. Oh, and it’s totally gorgeous, too.

So pack up your smartest-sounding book and check out Canberra packages and flights from lastminute.com.au. Some of that brilliance just might rub off on you!

Getting Around Canberra

Flights to Canberra Airport (CBR) land about 8km east of downtown. The city’s bus system is quick and reliable, but booking your own set of wheels from lastminute.com.au is always a smart move. Canberra has great bike paths, too, so getting around on two wheels is just as easy as four.

When You Land…

The National Arboretum opens early, so those arriving in the morning can pass the time amongst Japanese dogwoods and monkey puzzles—yes, that’s a tree, and yes, it would puzzle a monkey to climb it.

Canberra flights landing in the afternoon are just in time for a lunch overlooking Lake Burley Griffin and a day spent at the National Portrait Gallery. Get psychedelic at the mind-bending portrait of musician Nick Cave—then come back to earth at the death mask of famous bushranger Ned Kelly. Yikes! People were into weird stuff back in the day.

Night owls should book hotels in Canberra near the pedestrian-only Garema Place, drop their stuff and get ready to dance the night away.

Live Like a Local

Need to bring back a souvenir for your new beau, but museum gift shops just aren’t cutting it? Shop like the locals do on Sundays at Old Bus Depot Markets, east of Capital Hill. Munch on cheese and artisan bread and pick up leather goods, handmade soaps and local honey. Who knew Canberra was so hip?

We know you’re already a genius, traveller. That’s why you’re looking at cheap flights to Canberra on lastminute.com.au. All that’s left to do is click a few buttons and get packing!
