Pack a picnic basket and enjoy some time to yourself in the lush surroundings of City Hill and Glebe Park. King's Park and Commonwealth Park are two more nice places to while away the afternoon and finally read that neglected book of yours.

A visit to Canberra and Region Visitors Centre is an useful way of getting some information about your destination.

Dalhousie Mound Springs and Lake Burley Griffin are great and scenic picnics and spotting the local wildlife.

Do you want to take some time out by the oceanside? Pack up a bag with some delicious snacks and find a nice little spot at Waddy Point.

Lock your phone in the car and take a break from the stresses of the modern world at Mount Ainslie and Namadgi National Park. Stromlo Forest Park and Booroomba Rocks Walk are also appreciated by nature enthusiasts.
