City Walk (Canberra, Australia)

Canberra’s Paved Pedestrian Area – A Shoppers Paradise

Ever wondered how it would feel if you could go about your day without having to look left, right, and left again before you cross the road? With a visit to City Walk in Australia’s capital, Canberra, this is reality, not a dream. It is thought the name Canberra is derived from the Aboriginal word Canberry or Kambera, which is claimed to mean ‘meeting place’. The City Walk area from Alinga to Binara, except for Akuna Street, is exactly that, a vehicle-free zone and fantastic meeting point for all.

So Much to do in Such a Small Space

It only takes around ten minutes to walk the City Walk stretch from one end to the other. However you may want to set aside the entire day to do so. There’s shopping, dining, entertainment in the form of street performers, and so much more to see and do, it’s easy to become immersed in it all. In the heart of the city you’ll find the Canberra Merry-Go-Round, a magical carousel in Petrie Plaza that’s fun for all ages, not just the kids. Barely 100 metres away you’ll bump into the Canberra Shopping Centre, the ultimate destination for fashion and first-class entertainment. And when you’re exhausted from it all, why not take a breather at the centrepiece of the Civic, the Canberra Times Fountain. This fascinating sight marks the intersection of City Walk with Ainslie Avenue, and was installed in 1979 as a gift to the people of Canberra. After taking it easy and giving your legs a chance to rest, you may want to dig into Canberra’s arts and culture scene. The Canberra Theatre Centre offers a jam-packed schedule with everything from drama and dance to circus and comedy. There’s simply no end to the things to do in Canberra. If you just so happen to be visiting in February, you shouldn’t miss the National Multicultural Festival, an incredibly well-attended event that celebrates Australia’s cultural diversity.

City Walk and the Marvellous Markets

Canberra’s markets are a hive of activity, especially over the weekends. Perhaps the most well-known is the Old Bus Depot Market, where the vintage stalls are as unique as the handicrafts and food. The Handmade Market, as the name implies, features works of art that are painstakingly handcrafted by local artists. Make sure you leave enough time though to try the gourmet food. It’s served straight from food vans, creating a relaxed homely atmosphere.

Home is Where the Heart Is

No matter where you call home, Canberra accommodation is sure to impress even the most discerning traveller. Take Quest Canberra City Walk for instance. Its city centre location and apartment-style interior provide for such a convenient stay, you might want to linger a little longer than you originally thought. Novotel Canberra on the other hand is an excellent option for those who want extra luxury and comfort, while Crowne Plaza Canberra on Binara Street features a tranquil park-like setting with a modern light-filled atrium where you can relax and unwind after a long day. Wherever you decide to stay in Canberra, it’s highly likely you’ll be back for more.
