More centrally located than any Dickson hostel, the YHA is the perfect base to explore Australia's capital and its many free attractions. Visit the National Museum of Australia, Australian War Memorial, Parliament House, and Questacon. Walk or picnic beside Lake Burley Griffin, and enjoy views from Telstra Tower or Mount Ainslie. Canberra plays host to plenty of festivals during the year, including Floriade, Multicultural Festival, Balloon Fiesta, and International Film Festival.

Transit Bar Karaoke Night
Great for those who like to show off, and those who want to listen and judge other people’s talent. Just don't sing Wonderwall...
Transit Bar (Under the hostel)
Sangria Social + Live Music
Head up to the roof for a sunset, some sangria and some super-good company. Then we'll head to The Phoenix Bar for some live, local music...and probably more sangria.
