How do I get to Canberra?

Getting Around: By Car


Canberra is not an easy city to drive in, and you may well find yourself confused by the radial road system and its turnoffs. Still, because sights are scattered about and not easily connected on foot or by public transport, a car is a good way to see the city itself, as well as the sights in the Australian Capital Territory.

Bus tours, which depart every two hours daily, also visit the major city sights.

Maps ($2) featuring clearly marked scenic drives may be purchased at the Canberra Visitor Centre.
