Four of the best group activities in Canberra

Canberra has really shed its underdog status in recent years and, now, this compact city is a haven of stylish restaurants, boutique shopping, hip cafes and hidden laneway bars. Spice heads to Canberra to uncover some of the city’s exciting new secrets.
Exploring Tidbinbilla, with Blue Skies Adventure Tours

Dave’s Brewery Tours

The buzz around craft beer is showing no signs of abating, so why not take your group on a tour of one of the capital’s coolest breweries? Groups will get the chance to see behind-the-scenes, smell and taste a wide range of craft beers, as well as learn about the intricacies of brewing. Popular local craft breweries include Bentspoke Brewing Co, Zierholz, Wig and Pen and the latest addition, Capital Brewing Co (which has a popular Brodburger van onsite).

Blue Skies Adventure Tours

Explore Tidbinbilla, a wildlife reserve situated just 40 minutes’ drive from the city centre. Here, you will get the chance to get up close with native Australian wildlife such as emus, kangaroos, wallabies and even platypus’. The day tour also includes a visit to NASA’s Deep Space Tracking Station where you can see an authentic piece of the moon which was brought back by astronaut Buzz Aldren; the original dish that received the famous ‘One small step for man’ speech by Neil Armstrong; and  finally the biggest dish in the Southern Hemisphere.

Go Boats

Pack a picnic and a bottle of wine and head out to Lake Burley Griffin for a unique Scandinavian boat experience. The idea first began in Copenhagen in 2014, and has since spread to locations across Denmark, Sweden and most recently London. Canberra is the first location outside of Europe. Each GoBoat accommodates eight guests, is fully equipped with safety equipment, and does not require a boating license to operate.
