Getting around Canberra
Canberra’s bus system is one of the best in Australia. Buses run around four bus hubs: City, Wooden, Tuggeranon and Belconnen. Most of the city’s attractions and tourist areas are accessible by bus. Buses are fast and inexpensive and cost around US$3.
However, the most commonly used form of transport in Canberra is by car due to the high quality of the city’s road and highway network. The city’s districts are linked by ‘parkways’, which are wide roads with two lanes in each direction and a limit of 80-100 km/h.
For air transport, the city is served by Canberra International Airport, located 8km to the north-west. Most of its flights are domestic to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. International flights are few and far between and are not direct.
