Indulge in the capital

Holidays are for relaxing and indulgence. Whether it be a pampering experience, a wine tour or a decadent high tea, the Canberra region has your options covered. Splurge with a day spa in botanical surrounds, be chauffeured on a tour of Canberra District cool climate cellar doors, indulge in a high tea or drift above the capital in a hot air balloon. Wander galleries of world class art, hunt and cook truffles and explore new eat streets.

Rise early on your next trip to Canberra and take to the skies in a hot air balloon as the early morning sun fills the valley and floods the lakes with soft morning light. Enjoy the serenity as you drift above the national capital, sealing the experience with a Champagne breakfast just as the rest of the city is starting to come alive.

Craving dessert? Look away now if you don’t want to be tempted... Still looking? Well, we warned you. Meet the star of @Patissez’s Freakshow shakes – the glorious hot chocolate fudge shake, the Muddy Pat. “House-made dark chocolate fudge, topped with a good load of vanilla bean whipped cream, then stacked with a house-made super fudgey choc brownie and, as if that isn't enough, crowned with a fat chunk of house-made toasted marshmallow! Once you go Pat, you can never go back!” #visitcanberra

Here’s some ways you can introduce hygge into your life on your next Canberra…
