5 Canberra Festivals you don’t want to miss!

Blog post courtesy of http://www.prettydelicioustravels.com These top 5 Canberra festivals are a must do! If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard someone say Canberra is boring, I would probably be writing this post while relaxing in an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora, sipping on Moet (my dream holiday, btw). But sadly, this comes to you from my couch in Kingston with David Attenborough playing in the background. That does not mean the common sentiment about Canberra being boring doesn’t come up often. I’ll be the first to admit that Canberra is no Melbourne or Sydney and no one pretends that it is. There aren’t street festivals or free gigs to pack your weekends with.

Nevertheless, there are some things that one simply can’t miss. I’ve certainly got my favourites. So here is my list of top Canberra festivals. 1. National Multi-Cultural …

Canberra recently celebrated beer week and local businesses jumped on board to offer up beer based goodness to beer lovers. I got pretty excited when I found out my favourite restaurant in Canberra, Rubicon, was doing a seven course degustation with each course paired with beer. Yes, you heard that right – seven course fine dining menu matched with BEER! I’ll admit that I had my doubts. For me, beer has always been consumed with pub food. And having eaten at Rubicon before I couldn’t imagine how it could be done successfully given the exquisiteness of their food. But I was curious. So I booked a table for Saturday night and turned up with an empty belly and an open mind and soon learned I was no connoisseur of food and beer. Rubicon is located at the Griffith shops and is easy to miss if you are not paying attention, like …
