My wife has a speaking engagement in Canberra (first week of October) and I'm wondering what kind of day trips I can do to amuse myself while she is in meetings?
I enjoy nature/parks and I don't mind driving. My budget runs along the lines of $$ and I'd like to visit authentic Australian waterholes (taverns).
Also what about nightlife in Canberra?
Guidebooks aren't very kind to this city.
I'll have a rental car and it's my first time in AU.
Thanks for your help.
