Canberra Accommodation

Canberra Restaurants and Nightlife

As a young city with an influx of new residents as well as visitors, Canberra offers something for everyone in terms of entertainment and nightlife. It has an exciting music and theatre scene, with licensed clubs, gay friendly bars and a tolerant and broad-minded attitude to the out-of-the-ordinary. Cocktail bars and nightclubs open late and cater to all tastes. Live music, comedy performances and live-to-air sport are all available at the licensed clubs.

Visit www.canberraarts.com.au for classical and contemporary music, as well as theatre, dance, opera, film, jazz, comedy and kids' events. Or call the Hotline on 02 6257 4347.

Over three hundred restaurants and pubs are scattered through the city and inner suburbs. You can dine with a lovely view over the Lake, snuggle into a cosy café, or prop up a traditional bar to sample the wonderful fresh local produce, innovatively prepared and served. Anything and everything goes in Canberra.

Some very good cocktail lounges and pubs are in the historic Sydney and Melbourne buildings in Civic, the city centre, and around Garema Place and City Walk. The trendy inner-city suburbs of Manuka and Kingston harbour many good restaurants, while Dickson houses the eponymous Chinatown.
