Best Luxury Hotels In Canberra

Australia’s capital is surprisingly small, given its federal significance, which makes it a most manageable city break, coverable in just a few days. Located between the big hitters of Sydney and Melbourne, Canberra is well placed to include in an itinerary taking in all three cities. It’s rich in national museums, galleries and gardens that are home to one-fifth of Australia’s native plant species. And, as it’s known as The Bush capital, there are lots of local nature reserves and mountain ranges to explore on the city’s edge, allowing travellers to get close up with Australian wildlife.

Hyatt Hotel Canberra – A Park Hyatt Hotel

(5 stars)

Immaculate landscaping (the topiary is quite the work of art) and a country club feel await travellers checking into the Hyatt Hotel Canberra. The interiors of this low-rise Heritage Listed Hotel (which dates back to 1924) feature many of its original Art Deco design elements, along with a refined selection of classic furnishings that bring the property into this century. There’s a courtyard for drinks, two restaurants, a tennis court, a health club and a heated pool. A ten-minute walk brings you to attractions including an art gallery, library, Japanese garden and the lake.
