Get Social in Canberra

Events breathe even more oomph into this culturally cool capital. Not only does Canberra put on some of the nation’s biggest festivals and blockbuster exhibitions, it can also throw a mighty big party for all ages and appetites. Canberra’s spirited spread of events offer something for all curiosities, encompassing art, food and wine, theatre, music, markets and sport.

With four distinct seasons, Canberra’s events are designed to suit the climate: Floriade’s dazzling display of more than one million blooms in spring, wholesome and hearty offerings at The Truffle Festival in winter, the autumnal celebration of the wine region’s new vintage at the Canberra District Wine Harvest Festival and the burning rubber roar of Summernats in summer. And that’s just a tickle. Start searching Canberra’s events calendar to find out exactly what’s on offer in Canberra, and remember to book your accommodation early.
