Besides a couple of good Museums and exhibitions there isn't much to do in Canberra (especially the "Centre" is very dissapointing in fact that it is the capital). If you don't mind Walking a bit everything is in reach by foot from the YHA. I can recommend visiting the Parliament House on sitting days (and take the free guided tour) and as well the Old Parliament House(Museum of Democracy).
Stay at Canberra City YHA and explore the attractions of Australia's capital city by bike or bus. Don't miss Parliament House, the War Memorial, the National Museum of Australia and so much more!
