Capital Country

Covering an area from the Southern Highlands in the north, Young and Crookwell in the west and south to the Capital Territory, travellers will be in holiday heaven.

Visitors can wander through historic cottages, admire gracious old buildings, discover local treasures and stroll through gardens both quaint and grand. Keen explorers can view nature at its finest with about 53 per cent of the total area preserved as parks and reserves.

Travellers will want to visit the largest city in south east NSW, Queanbeyan, which is located just 15 minutes from Parliament House and offers galleries, museums and many other attractions including wineries around Lake George and Bungendore.

With history in abundance, travellers can learn of the Australian story and how Canberra came to be the site for the newly federated nation of Australia in 1908.

Stop by the tiny historic township of Collector or Taste food from farm to plate, and wine from vine to glass in one of the many outstanding restaurants or award-winning wineries of the Capital Country Region. Uncover the natural beauty of The Great Dividing Range and alpine peaks surrounding the Australian Capital Territory.

Historic townships, natural wonders, beautiful coastlines and the famous Snowy Mountains make Capital Country a fantastic base from which to explore. See the trip planner to plan for a holiday in this region.
