Turn off your phone and put the ‘do not disturb’ sign on your day, while you make time for yourself and get involved in an activity that will have you feeling rejuvenated.

Australian National Botanical Gardens

Connect yourself with Australian Flora at the Botanical Gardens and appreciate all the beautiful native flowers and plants from all over the country. Walk through the lush rainforest gully or stroll past the Asteraceae Garden and let the beauty of the gardens put your mind at ease. Also be on the lookout for the animals that live amongst the gardens.

Spa Day

What could be more relaxing than a day at the spa to completely relax the body and mind? Try Hale Spa for not only their rejuvenating massages and facials but their cave-like spa pool and Scandi-style lounge with views of the courtyard. Or Endota Spa for their large range of facials, massages and beauty services that can revive, rejuvenate, immerse and ground your body.

Wine Tasting

Take a scenic drive just outside of Canberra and spend your Sunday looking out onto the picturesque vineyard while you try some of the cool climate wines we are famous for. Try a rose, white or red tasting flight with homemade pizza from Four Winds Winery, a wine tasting followed by an excellent dinner at the Olleyville Restaurant at Shaw Wines or see what all the fuss is about and try Clonakilla’s Shiraz Viognier that has won multiple wine of the year awards in Australia.

Picnic

With some beautiful lakeside and garden locations around the capital, why not utilise the lovely space and picnic in the sun with friends. Grab a pizza from the city paired with your favourite bottle of wine and take it down to Lake Burley Griffin and relax amongst the green grass as you enjoy the fresh air. Or go walking around the National Arboretum and find a secluded spot with views of the lake and surrounds.

Step away from your busy life and feel like you’re in another city while staying right in Canberra at one of our epic staycation locations.
