Canberra: Bus Tours

Australia's Bustling Capital

Bus tours of Canberra are bookable for a morning, afternoon, evening or a whole day tour; and there are a great deal of competing guides so it pays to shop around to get a decent price. They generally start from the city centre, and are primarily run by several large bus tour companies like Wonderbus and Explorer, who also arrange tips further afield that take in Black Mountain, Mt Majura and beautiful surrounding hinterland. The leisurely bus tours are fun, witty and informative, including sightseeing around all of Canberra’s beautiful bushland, parks and architecture; stopping at each and every one of the major local attractions. All bus tours in Canberra include photo stops, refreshment breaks and stops for lunch on the all-day tours. The fares range from between $15 and $40, depending on the length of the tour and destinations en route. There are various types of unlimited travel passes, so do check with the guide operator for the most suitable travel passes depending on the length of your stay in Canberra.
