Summary

To grasp the cultural essence of a country, you must first understand its journey to the present.  There is no better way to achieve this than to explore its capital city.  This Canberra tour focusses on Australian art and culture offering the perfect mix of cultural history, symbolism and Australian pride all in a modern and vibrant setting.

Canberra as a city is designed to showcase the cultural heritage and diversity of Australia.  It achieves this by creating a number of  specifically designed attractions focussing on the significant cultural elements of the country.

 

The Canberra Tour

Museum of Australian Democracy

This building was once Canberra’s Parliament House until the new Parliament House was completed in 1988.

Canberra’s Old Parliament House is now home to the Museum of Australian Democracy.  Iconic – a place of great beauty, design and historical significance.  Shed some light on Australia’s political system.  How it evolved from a British colony to its current structure.

 

National Gallery of Australia

The National Gallery is not only Australia’s national art museum but also one of the largest art museums in the country.  It holds more than 166,000 works of art.  Each piece unique and each with a story to share.

The National Gallery is situated adjacent to Lake Burley Griffin within the Parliamentary Triangle.

 

National Museum of Australia

To top off the Arts and Culture Tour, Australia’s stories will come alive at the National Museum of Australia. The Museum’s stunning architecture offers visitors an extraordinary place to explore rich, diverse stories of Australia and its people. There are many displays and exhibitions to explore.
