You have tried several times to get an answer to this question... Why do you not contact Tourism Canberra, perhaps they can help.

Hi Veepu. You probably have all the information you need by now, but in case not...

Kingston is a little far compared to some other options. We stayed in an apartment run by these people and were happy with the low price and excellent service, but the nearest thing they have for you is in Chifley, which is still two buses from Learmonth. At least the taxi will be cheaper than from Kingston.

Learmonth Drive is close to Tuggeranong Town Centre, which is well serviced by buses and you could even walk to Learmonth in about 20 minutes (though probably too far for kids to walk), plus there is at least one hotel in Tuggeranong Town Centre.

You could also try reading the ads and/or posting your own ad for short-term accommodation at

I agree with the others that you should have no special concern about moving in Canberra alone. Your kids will like the Kambah area as there is lots of open space and playgrounds. Plus the Tuggeranong mall (!!)

Travel Tips for Canberra

There's a lot to occupy your time.....

by jaam

The National Gallery of Australia has for it's share of collection more than 100,000 works of arts, it is home to an ever-changing series of exhibitions including regular "blockbusters" from overseas.
Tours of the masterpieces last about half an hour and are conducted by voluntary guides who are very friendly and knowledgeable. Walking all over....we were there in the fall and the colors are still so bright and green. I just love it....

Canberra Tip

by khalid_2

The ACT measures 80km from north to south and is about 30km wide. It is landlocked within the mountainous country of south-eastern New South Wales, 300km from Sydney by road.

Canberra and its surrounding suburbs are in the north-east of the territory, while the Namadgi National Park occupies the south-western area. The population grew from 50,000 in 1960 to 300,000 today.

Black Mountain rises to 812m and is topped by the 195m-high Telecom Telecommunications Tower. Other nearby mountains include Red Hill (722m), Mt Pleasant (665m) and Mt Ainslie (840m), which is close to the city and has particularly fine views.

The ACT's climate is one of extremes: deep frosts and some snowfalls in winter, and baking heat in summer. As a result, autumn and spring are the best times to visit the capital.

Visit the Old Parliament House...

by Ronald_T

Visit the Old Parliament House ( When Australia’s Federal Government moved to Canberra in 1927, the Old Parliament House was its first home. Although the building was supposed to be a temporary structure, Parliament continued to sit here until 1988, when the new Parliament House (see above) opened on Capital Hill. This site is worth a visit with the surrounding rose gardens or you can take a step back into history, with guided tours of the building and the intriguing sound and light presentation 'Order! Order! ' The Old Parliament House is also the home of the National Portrait Gallery, where you can meet many of Australia’s most famous faces, as seen by many of Australia’s most famous artists. The vistas from the front looking back to the War Memorial (see further) and from the back looking up to the New Parliament House are equally magnificent…

High Court of Australia

by iandsmith

The High Court building is one of Australia's National Buildings.
The building was designed by the architectural firm of Edwards Madigan Torzillo and Briggs Pty Ltd, who were the winners of a national architectural competition held in 1972 and 1973.
It was completed in 1980 at a total cost of $46.5 million. It was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II on 26 May 1980.
The forecourt and main entrance of the building are approached via a long, paved ceremonial ramp underneath which is a carpark, warehouse and machinery rooms. A so-called waterfall, more a series of fountains, designed by Robert Woodward and constructed of South Australian speckled granite, runs the full length of one side of the ramp.
The 40-metre tall building is essentially one of concrete and glass comprising a number of major functional elements, namely a large public hall, three courtrooms, an administrative wing, and Justices chambers. As you enter your eyes are guided upwards by the layout as the severe supporting pillars spread into the honeycombed ceiling that has an aura all its own.
Most of the external and internal walls created by the 18,400 cubic metres of concrete used in the construction have been subjected to a process known as "bush hammering", carried out with a percussion instrument, which has flaked the surface and exposed the aggregate within the concrete.
The glazed areas total some 4,000 square metres and these are mainly on the northern and southern faces of the building. The use of steel frame supports for the glazed areas has meant that generous expansion allowances have had to be provided to cope with Canberra's relatively wide temperature range. A system was devised so that the glass in the walls can "creep" up or down according to the temperature changes and any movement in the concrete structure.

The Australian Political Ute

by ATXtraveler

I noticed that in Canberra, above all other cities in Australia, Ute drivers had something to say. In particular, this driver's vehicle was a rolling billboard, although he had so many messages, I didn't know what he was really trying to say. This vehicle is called a Ute, which is short for Utility Vehicle. Shorter than a pickup truck, but normally with just as much power, these little car/trucks pack some major towing power and a bed for hauling supplies. In this particular case, the owner was also an activist for several causes. When someone is this passionate on that many topics, then it is best to just exchange pleasantries, because anything more could cause a ruckus. We do encourage you to take the time and read every bumper sticker if you like!
