No family trip to Canberra is complete without experiencing the excitement of Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre, home to more than 200 hands-on exhibits. At Questacon you can free fall down a six-metre slide, experience an earthquake and star in a Spectacular Science Show. Excite @ Q is a high energy, high impact and highly addictive gallery space where visitors can try to keep their balance as they move through the Rototron tunnel. #visitcanberra

On your next family holiday to Canberra why not let your kids be outdoor adventurers? Just 45 minutes from the city centre you can search for a platypus and get a bird's eye view of the wetlands from Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve’s Sanctuary. Play on the Nature Discovery Playground while spotting rock wallabies, kangaroos and emus. Don’t miss seeing the tiny northern corroboree frogs in the Visitor Centre. Ranger-guided tours are also available. #visitcanberra
