No matter the weather you can always find Canberran’s dining outdoors. With so many destinations providing a unique experience we can see why they can’t keep locals indoors. Whether the weather calls for umbrellas, marquees or outdoor heaters, there will always be a place for you outside to soak up the fresh air.

Tipsy Bull

Enjoy a seasonal sharing menu as you seat yourself in Tipsy Bull’s lush gin garden, with of course a gin in hand from their amazing selection. With umbrellas for the summer sun and outdoor heaters for when it gets cool, their outdoor space is enjoyed all year round!
