RV and Caravan hire from local owners in Australian Capital Territory —
They say that great things come in small packages and the Australian Capital Territory is no exception. Don’t let its size fool you, beneath this manicured exterior lies a capital territory full of natural wonders and unique adventures worth discovering. ACT is of course, the home of our nation’s capital and of Australian parliament. For most people this would be a good enough reason to steer clear, but it’s hard to ignore the beauty of a perfectly planned city landscape set amongst some of the most rugged and beautiful forests in the country.
Canberra, commonly known as the “Bush Capital” is the first (but not the only) place to visit while you’re in ACT. Since the city is surrounded by forests, what better way to explore it than to bring a caravan and experience the alpine scenery up close?
After a dignified day trip visiting the Australian National Gallery, the War Memorial, Parliament House and Questacon (perhaps more fun than dignified), you can get your heart rate going again by bushwalking, rock climbing, cycling or just take a picnic to Commonwealth Park and enjoy the stunning landscape surrounding Lake Burley Griffin. Outside Canberra, there are plenty of camping sites that sit along the rivers of Nerriga and Sassafras, if you fancy a little river camp.
There are also woodland camping areas if you prefer the seclusion of ACT’s lush alpine forests. If you’re willing to go off road, there are opportunities for bush camping all over the territory. ACT isn’t just a posh haven for politicians and dignitaries, it encompasses all the comforts of an urban city whilst still maintaining a laid back, rural sense of hospitality.
