Australian Capital Territory accommodation
In 1908, the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) was designated as land for the national capital by Federal Parliament.
The landscape of fertile farm and grazing lands, has an abundance of nature with over half of the total area preserved as parks and reserves. Only 45 minutes drive from the city is Tidbinbilla nature reserve offering walking trails, ranger-guided activities, Australian animals in their natural habitat, a chance to see conservation work with programs to restore threatened species including the brush tailed rock wallaby and corroboree frog, delightful wildflowers during spring and rich Indigenous and pioneer heritage.
There is over 20,000 years of human occupation in the mountains, meaning visitors have been travelling here for visits longer than the Great Pyramids have existed! The Indigenous rock art and Aboriginal shelters are easily accessible.
With a range of hotels to suit every taste and budget in the nation's capital, see for yourself the great things that come with the territory.
