For a unique kind of experience, a visit to the Canberra Space Centre located 35km southwest of the city is one to add to your list! The centre allows visitors to discover the important role Australia plays in the exploration of space in a fun, educational manner. Be mesmerised by views of the largest antenna in the Southern Hemisphere, observe a piece of the moon that dates back to more than 3.8 million years ago, witness flown space hardware and memorabilia and so much more! Whilst the centre is only accessible by car, it is well worth the drive! Located in quite an isolated area, be sure to fill your car up before your drive and travel safely as the road winds through bush and farmland! With free entry and daily opening hours, the Canberra Space Centre is an exciting attraction that will easily make your Canberra trip!
