Australian Capital Territory — Travel Tips

  • Between the months of December and February, advanced hotel bookings are necessary
  • Gas stations are usually found off the main roads, so motorists should seek out fuel pumps along the side streets of Australian Capital Territory (ACT) highways
  • The largest city, Canberra, is a cycle-friendly city
  • Even though the gateway airport into ACT does not cater to international connections, tourists should carry their passports at all times
