Views from the 6

If you’re looking for a scenic place that offers an unreal view of Canberra – Mount Ainslie Lookout is the place to go to. This point offers picture-perfect views of the whole of Canberra – you can see the Parliamentary Triangle, Black Mountain Tower and the vast, large mountain ranges. You can either walk up the mountain and be rewarded in the end by its beauty OR simply take the easy drive up. Fancy reading more about Mount Ainslie?

Mojitos – Mo Problems

Nothing beats a good cocktail and if you’re on the hunt for a scrumptious delight – Kokomo’s is the place to head to. The hip restaurant/bar/nightclub has a Tropicana feel to it with a gorgeous, jungle décor. They offer a long list of various cocktails, whether you like salty or sweet – they’ve got the one for you. I recommend trying the “Miami Vice” slushie cocktail (one word: amaaaazing) – click here to visit their website and have a geez here for their full drinks menu.

You beauty!

Canberra has many exciting attractions, however, the number one to go to is undoubtedly the Australian National Botanic Gardens. If you’re like me and have a love for all things outdoors, this is the place for you. The gardens offer a range of native trees, flowers and other various plants. If you’re lucky, you might also spot some furry little friends – a wallaby, kangaroo or vicarious birds! Follow here to have a look at their website.
