Explore the historical, political and cultural sites of Canberra on a bicycle. This tour provides an excellent orientation for all visitors to Canberra.

This guided bike tour is suitable for those spending either one or more days in our marvellous city. In the short time available for this tour, many of the places we go are only accessible by bike, so our bicycle tour provides an excellent and quick orientation for all visitors to Canberra.

Since 1988 the city's focal point has been the large Australian flag flying from the stainless steel flagpole on top of Parliament House, the seat of government in Australia. Spread out below is Lake Burley Griffin, the parklands of the Parliamentary Triangle and the homes of many of Australia’s social and cultural institutions. These striking institutions, the government buildings that surround them and the other National Institutions spread throughout the city are there with one purpose in mind - to collect, preserve and share the nation’s stories.

As we ride through the parklands using part of the Canberra Centenary Trail we pass many of these institutions including the National Museum of Australia, the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House, the National Archives of Australia, the High Court of Australia, the National Gallery of Australia, the National Portrait Gallery, The National Science and Technology Centre (Questacon), the National Library of Australia and the Australian War Memorial. 

Throughout the tour we will stop to tell stories and take photos.

We stop for lunch at one of the cafes in the new Kingston Foreshore urban renewal redevelopment, which is built on the site of the old industrial area established to build and provide power to early Canberra. On our way we will pass through the Kingston Arts Precinct, home to the Canberra Glassworks and the famous Old Bus Depot Markets.
