Everything you need to know about canberra. ONE DESTINATION.

The Long Weekend Edit

Posted on

Things are changing rapidly in Canberra as we work together to keep our community safe.

Welcome to the essential guide to your weekend, Canberra.

The Weekend Edit is usually bursting with great events and encourages people to get out and about. However, things are very different for Canberra at the moment.

While restrictions are slowly lifting, we strongly encourage you to keep physical distance between each other when you leave the house and be mindful of the current restrictions.

Each Friday, we round up a selection of physical-distancing friendly activities for your weekend + some of the best reads from the past week.

Let’s stay safe and sensible, Canberra, and we’ll get through this together.


Restrictions may have eased, but your responsibility hasn’t.
