Canberra does winter well, providing a plethora of options to keep you both warm and satisfied on cold days. Here are our top five things to do in Canberra this winter.
1. Hunt for some truffles
Running all winter long at various venues around Canberra, The Truffle Festival is an epic celebration of the world’s most coveted fungi. Join in a truffle hunt, drool over a truffle-focused degustation and take part in a cooking class to learn how to create delcious and simple truffle dishes at home.
2. Dance the night away
Let your hair down at a Great Gatsby Gala hosted by Hotel Kurrajong. On 21 July, indulge in a 3-course dinner and drinks while being transported to the 1920's with a 20 piece swing band and glamourous costumes. Don't miss out, reserve your spot now!
3. Sip some delicious wines
Pay at visit to Pialligo Estate to taste a selection of wines and enjoy a delicious meal. If you visit on a Sunday you can enjoy their famous Sunday Roast, cooked to perfection over the specially designed fire pit.
4. Get your blood pumping
It might be chilly outside but Lake Burley Griffin is spectacular in winter and there’s no better way to enjoy it than on the tried and tested 5km walking track between Commonwealth Bridge and Kings Avenue Bridge. Pop into The Deck at Regatta Point along the way if you need refueling.
5. Play in the snow
You only have to head 45 minutes out of the city to find snow all winter long in Canberra. Ski, board, toboggan or have a good old fashioned snow ball fight at Corin Forest.
