There are many hills in the immediate area of Canberra, from the 195 metre (650 feet) Telstra Tower, topping the 825 metre high (2750 feet) Black Mountain, there is an stunning view of the area for those who do not get dizzy in revolving restaurants (a meal is optional).

A hot air ballooning trip provides another way of taking in the view. Glenloch Sheep Station, situated in Belconnen on the outskirts of Canberra, is a popular tourist attraction.

Activities include sheep shearing, sheep dog demonstrations, boomerang throwing and rounded off with a traditional Australian barbecue lunch. The Canberra Deep Space Communications Complex, 40 kilometres (25 miles) southwest of Canberra, contains a collection of space models and memorabilia (including a substantial piece of the moon) and interactive exhibits covering 40 years of space exploration.

The Snowy Mountains are to the south of Canberra, in New South Wales, and provide brilliant opportunities for winter skiing and summertime pursuits such as horse riding, bush walking and water sports.

Organised trips from Canberra are available, for more details please contact the Canberra Tourism & Events Corporation (see Contacts section).
