Must try burgers in Canberra

Who doesn’t love a good burger?! There’s something about deliciously tasty (and sometimes indulgent) fillings sandwiched between a soft bread roll that has sent Canberra and the world a little burger mad.

We’ve put together a list of burgers and burger joints that we think you should check out in Canberra.

Escape to Hamilton Island

I’ve always said that the only way to survive a Canberra winter is to get out, even if it’s just for an extra long weekend!

We’re in the midst of the coldest time of the year in Canberra and it’s not too late to plan your winter escape. Even if you don’t live in Canberra, if a warm, island destination (otherwise known as paradise) is where you want to be then Hamilton Island is the perfect escape for you.

The Grounds of Alexandria – a magical day out

One of Sydney’s most iconic eateries, The Grounds of Alexandria is a foodie’s wonderland.
