Activities/Attractions: Canberra is Australia's federal capital, established in 1913 as part of Australia's federation. Housing the national parliament, federal government departments, the High Court of Australia, the Australian War Memorial, and several other important institutions, Canberra together with its surrounds, makes up Australia's Capital Territory (ACT).
Canberra sits slightly inland from the coast at roughly a 2,000ft altitude on an elevated plain. The Molonglo River was dammed and the result is Lake Burley Griffin, which is something of a centrepiece for this sprawling community. The city is delineated into a number of districts and suburbs that emanate from the central Parliamentary Triangle, which in turn is bordered by City Hall and the Civic Centre.
Visitors to Canberra spend their days admiring the modern architecture and perusing the endless array of museums, memorials and government buildings - virtually all of which are open to the public. When touring takes its toll, Lake Burley Griffin is a nice place to relax, while the more distant Snowy Mountains beckon nature lovers and adventurers. After the sun sets, Canberra nightlife takes centre stage.
Canberra is a fascinating place to visit and learn about Australia’s heritage. Conceptualised and built in a few short decades, the city itself bears witness to the unbridled Australian spirit. A holiday in Canberra is as relaxing as it is educational, and tourists are always glad they visited.
"Our stay at Grevillea Lodge was everything we had hoped for only much more. The accommodation was very pleasant, especially the pet friendly aspect. The facilities included Cable TV and Internet access which was a bonus. Free and easy access, early or late and on top of that a beautiful breakfast and a very nice lady host."
"This was just the best accommodation we have been able to stay at with our dogs. Everything was first class quality - furniture, towels, bed linen and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was superb and the home made choices and jam unbelievable. Merrell looked after us so well that we have already booked for next year. In fact I think we will be back long before then."
"A beautifully maintained haven that personalised Canberra for us, with a hostess who was discreet, but available, and who made good suggestions and helpful hints about attractions."
"Excellent property which enabled you to live quite independently. Very friendly hostess. The dogs loved it."
"We received a very warm welcome into an immaculately clean house where we were extremely comfortable."
"The property is very clean and comfortable. The hosts are very helpful and friendly. Lots of nice touches and added extras. Very good for a family."

"We loved our stay at Grevillea Lodge - the accommodation far exceeded our expectations. The location, not far from Canberra central, was within walking distance to a shopping centre with many eating our options (cafe's, service clubs etc). Merrill, the host - and now our friend, is warm and friendly, and the little extra's she provided were great surprises. Her dog Nikki, kitten Miyu and visiting native birds all added to our great stay. We would thoroughly recommend Grevillea Lodge, and have told all our friends. Who'd stay at a hotel when you could have all this - we call it 'Canberra's little secret'."
