Ideas For The Perfect Canberra Staycation

Whether you're tight on time or budget, or you want to splash out a bit, a Canberra staycation is great value for money.  Moreover, if you decide to stay longer, we can help you ‘make the smart move’.

Here are some great ideas for the perfect staycation for you to enjoy alone, with your family or with friends. 

Let's start with breakfast!

Our Capital City offers an eclectic array of amazing cafés that offer scrumptious, mouth-watering breakfast menus that make you feel like you're on a vacation. The waterside Kingston Foreshore, which attracts many tourists for its beautiful views and cosmopolitan atmosphere, is a great place to head to for your morning brunch. For a more deluxe buffet, head to the Buvette, at Hotel Realm and you'll have a memorable, first-class dining experience.

Next, indulge yourself with a high-end spa.

The city has a great selection of such facilities including Endota Spa, Canberra Day Spa or the Thai Bliss, where you can indulge in a great massage or like mani-pedi, facials, haircuts, etc.; to make you feel pampered and relaxed, and to help relieve all that stress and your sore muscles.

If you like to stay active on your holidays, kayaking on Lake Burley Griffin while taking in the enchanting views or not take this opportunity to hop onto a Segway and go cruising around - you might learn something new about the city along the way.

Explore a winery at the Canberra Wine District and spend your day trying some great wines with cheese. Maybe even buy your favourite to enjoy later at night.

A true staycation at a luxury hotel like Little National or Park Hyatt Hotel is a sure-fire way to spoil a loved one. They have impressive packages that allow you to enjoy every element that the hotel offers. Comfortable rooms, restaurants with decadent food, state of the art lounges to sit and enjoy a new book, swimming pools, day spas, and even fitness centres and high-end gyms to burn off the overindulgence later. And did we mention, free parking? What more do you need!

As if these ideas weren't enough, there are many other ways to enjoy a Canberra Staycation, but we picked the best out for you! So, go ahead and enjoy yourself without having to drive across the state.
