The newest exhibit features a massive Stegodon, a relative of the woolly mammoth, and illuminates life after the dinosaurs. Visitors can navigate through hundreds of millions of years of the planet's past with the help of enthusiastic tour guides. Attracting over 100,000 visitors annually, the museum also hosts private parties and dinosaur-themed sleepovers during school holiday periods.

Rocky Trail Entertainment organizes several mountain bike events in Canberra every year, ranging from cross-country endurance racing to downhill, and even the new gravity enduro format. They run these events at Stromlo Forest Park, one of Australia's most popular mountain bike parks with over 60km of single trails. Visitors can participate in Rocky Trail's endurance races. Or, watch the annual Downhill state series event that's all about big jumps. It includes the most technical downhill trails Stromlo has to offer. The park's facilities offer undercover picnic spots, a kids' playground and best of all -- a hot shower where visitors can freshen up after their ride.


Questacon - National Science and Technology Centre

01_location.png Address: King Edward Terrace, Canberra ACT

Any visitors to Canberra traveling with kids should put Questacon in their itinerary. Questacon has made science a very fun learning experience with its seven themed galleries, filled with over 200 hands-on exhibits. Kids can free fall down a six metre slide, experience an earthquake and star in a Spectacular Science Show. Probably Questacon's most photographed and most interesting exhibit is the Rototron, a walk-thru tunnel with LED lights that will make you feel like the tunnel is spinning. There is so much to see and discover at the centre. There's only so much that can be written about it, but it's fairly certain that your kids will beg you to come back to Questacon.

What else can you do with your Canberra rental car?


Take a sail on Lake Burley GriffinEat your way around Manuka and Kingston. Explore the history of this nation through the War Memorial or a tour through the old and new Parliament House. Take a wander through the multi coloured fields full of tulips and other flowers during Floriade. Your options are endless in Canberra for things to do with your rental car so get exploring.

War Memorial

Although the public transport system can probably take you where you want to go in the city area, having a rental car means you have the freedom to explore Canberra in your own time. With the National Museum, Library, War Memorial and also Parliament House, you are going to need all the time you have got to enjoy what the city has to offer.

In the middle of the CBD area is a shopping centre that sprawls across a few streets. This is nothing but good news for the shopaholics amongst us. If you are that way inclined, make sure to select a model of rental car with plenty of boot space for stowing away your buys.

There is also such a thriving fine dining culture in the city it would be a shame not to experience it all. Taking a walk through the CBD can give you many options on where to eat, but if you want something to write home about try a few of these places. Courgette on Marcus Clark Street, or try Jewel of India, Thirst or Mezzalira which are just some of the amazing restaurants on hand at the renowned Melbourne Building.
