Take a leap into outer space at the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex, a 45-minute drive from the heart of Canberra. Here you’ll discover NASA’s Deep Space Network, an international network of antennas that support interplanetary spacecraft missions. For a great view of the dishes, as well as an insightful exhibit about Australia’s role in space exploration, head to the Canberra Space Centre on the complex grounds.

Red Hill offers an amazing lookout over many of our national icons and sweeping vistas of Canberra from the south. You can enjoy the brilliant reds and oranges of the deciduous trees in the suburbs below in autumn, or, throughout the year, do what Instagrammer @neiliogb did and get to the nature reserve bright and early to witness a colourful sunrise. #visitcanberra #onegoodthingafteranother

Enjoy unhindered views of Canberra and the Brindabellas from Mount Painter. Instagrammer @carol_pie recently made the most of the sunshine and snapped this photo on a walk to the summit. Mount Painter is part of the Canberra Nature Park, which comprises about 30 separate native bushland and grassland reserves throughout urban Canberra. These provide fantastic opportunities for walking, exploring the territory and relaxing in nature. #visitcanberra #onegoodthingafteranother

The sculptural arch of the National Museum of Australia provided a colour-coordinated backdrop for Instagrammer @cecil1958’s action shot of a windsurfer out and about on Lake Burley Griffin. How will you make the most of Canberra’s great outdoor offerings this weekend? #visitcanberra #onegoodthingafteranother

“Sometimes you just can't get to the top.” Instagrammer @kierancarew shared this incredible image taken while on a hiking adventure in Canberra. More than half of the Australian Capital Territory is nature reserve, national park or state forest and within that landscape sits a planned city with a great network of walking paths and bushwalking trails, just perfect for exploring. #visitcanberra #onegoodthingafteranother

Summer is just around the corner and there’s really nothing like the feeling of kayaking on Lake Burley Griffin. The masterful centrepiece of Canberra, the large and lovely Lake Burley Griffin is an ideal water playground, whether you’re into kayaking, rowing, sailing, stand-up paddle boarding or fishing. For those seeking a more leisurely experience, take a cruise or simply enjoy the water views from one of the many lake-side cafes and restaurants. Photo by Instagrammer @metamorfoseada…

What’s your favourite park in Canberra? Instagrammer @danniellebryant_ shared this gorgeous photo of Canberra Nara Peace Park within Lennox Gardens on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin. The park is known for its Japanese-themed garden, gazebo, stone lanterns, and a number of iconic cherry blossom trees.
