  • The best tourist information centre I have ever seen. Large, clean and tidy. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Strongly recommend going their 1st. They will give you a map of Canberra, then ask what your interested in. Highlight these areas on the map for you and you keep this and take away with you. Brilliant.

  • I really liked this place I do like debating and a tiny bit of politics. But after coming here I'm almost addicted to politics. I guess everyone has there own opinions. But seeing the place has really been amazing you get to see the voting place the seating the history and so much more knowledge. I recommend this place.

  • Very informative! Knowledgeable friendly staff. Great photos and maps/plans for Canberra! Who knows about Marion Mahony Griffin? - his wife and architect and colleague who made an equally valuable if not greater input into the design of Canberra! A wonderful discovery.... at the exhibition!

  • I loved this place. It is full of history and knowledge, it is a compulsory stop when you're visiting Canberra. It'll teach you curious facts about the Australian Capital Territory. 100% recommended

  • Floriade is amazing. Every year a different theme. It is an exhibition that has something for everyone. The night fest is perfect for the crowd without kids. During the day the rides and activities get the kids involved. Highly recommend visiting Floriade. I have seen the past 8 exhibitions since I moved to Canberra.
