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.
This is an ideal place to take a caravanning holiday so pack up your van and head for the capital. Don’t own one? No problem! Simply browse our listings to find your perfect RV.
