Take another look at Canberra

The New Zealand travel trade is being urged to think again about Canberra and promote it as a food and wine destination with new experinces not usually associated with the city.

Nicole Casey, partnerships events officer with Visit Canberra, was at ATE this week and says that among other things, clients will now find Bell tent and (since about a fortnight ago) a Tiny House accommodation at Mount Majora.

The guest experience typically starts with a wine tasting, and includes a hamper dinner and lunch.

Canberra’s museums and galleries have also moved to provide a more premium experience for those visitors who want more than a regular tour or stroll through during opening hours. The National Gallery of Australia, for example, has a matched dinner and artworks experience that includes a curated tour.

The National Museum of Australia offers an early morning balloon trip, followed by breakfast and a behind the scenes tour. Those and more are part of the Cultural Attractions of Australia, one the Signature Experiences collections.
