Instagrammer @rachiperera thinks you really need to spend ten minutes lost in this wisteria lane at @oldparliamenthouse on a gorgeous spring day. The Old Parliament House Gardens located on either side of the iconic building offer a pleasant, rose filled place to pause in the heart of the Parliamentary Zone. “Blue skies, the sun on your face, birds chirping, butterflies fluttering, the smell of roses and all that wisteria... ahhh go see it already!” #visitcanberra #onegoodthingafteranother

Instagrammer @Jovianshadow beautifully captured the iconic view down ANZAC Parade, across Lake Burley Griffin to Parliament House. Memorials dedicated to Australian and New Zealand service people who’ve fought and died in war line the length of the Parade and at its end sits the Australian War Memorial. #visitcanberra #onegoodthingafteranother

See the beauty and versatility of glass in a new light at the Canberra Glassworks, housed in the historic Kingston Power House. @Canberraglassworks is Australia's only cultural centre that is wholly dedicated to contemporary glass art. Take a self-guided tour, see professional glass artists at work, make your own glass paperweight or take introductory glass courses from experts and see their striking exhibitions. #visitcanberra #onegoodthingafteranother

“The National Portrait Gallery is a fantastic place to visit while in Canberra.” Thanks to the team at @easthotel for sharing this photo of the @portraitau, where visitors can gain a greater understanding of the Australian people – their identity, history, creativity, culture and diversity – through portraiture. The portraits include a fascinating array of artists, musicians, entertainers, politicians, sports people and royalty. #visitcanberra #onegoodthingafteranother

Instagrammer @beautifuladieu recently spent a quiet afternoon touring the Australian War Memorial learning about history and remembering those who sacrificed their lives in their fight for peace. The @awmemorial is considered by many to be one of the most important landmarks in Australia. “Definitely one of the most interesting museums I've ever been to. Hire a guide if you're going!” #visitcanberra #onegoodthingafteranother
