Canberra's Enlighten projections and surrounding NSW

The side panel of one of the Enlighten information pillars between the Questacon building and the National Library of Australia. The top of the sign reads “Enlighten – Culture and Creativity Illuminate The Capital”. The panel below is titled “The Electric Garden” and begins “Autumnal landscapes and childhood dreams breathe life into Canberra after dark as Enlighten returns in March.” Lights colour the path red and purple and the trees are illuminated an autumnal golden brown. Blurred images of people hover over the coloured path.

Canberra: One good ride after another

“Criminally overlooked Canberra packs a big punch …  [with] opportunities to connect with nature or indulge in a range of gastronomic delights, along with a smorgasbord of cultural, artistic and sporting events, Canberra should be on everybody’s 2018 travel wish list,” Chris Zeiher, Lonely Planet

Relish the wide blue skies and clean crisp air on our bicycle holiday through the Canberra region, and see why Lonely Planet voted our home town third in the world’s top 10 cities to visit in their ‘Best in Travel 2018’.

See Canberra light up after dark with the spectacular Enlighten Festival. With unbelievable architectural projections transforming buildings within the Parliamentary Triangle, and with live music, performances and delicious food stalls to explore, Enlighten is a feast for the senses.

Soak up the region’s contrasts as you go from urban delights to country hospitality, with overnight stays in Canberra as well as the South East NSW townships of Bungendore, Gunning, Crookwell and Goulburn.
