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 Griffin. Eat 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.
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.
