Warm Memories at the Heart of Canberra Tourism Campaign

Gallery hopping, truffle hunts, luxurious day spas and heart-warming winter festivals are just some of the reasons to visit Canberra with your significant other this winter.

Australian Capital Tourism’s Wrapt in Winter campaign has commenced, tempting winter travellers to take a short break and create special memories in the nation’s capital. The campaign specifically targets couples through a range of experiences and inviting accommodation packages.

Visitors can enjoy soft adventure experiences such as skydiving, paragliding or horse riding along the Poacher’s Way, exercise their intellect at one of the many galleries and museums or spoil themselves with a decadent high tea or spa treatment. If that’s not enough, excellent food and wine experiences abound.

Using the tagline Winter makes the warmest memories, the campaign aims to position Canberra as the ideal place to create lasting memories with loved ones.

Australian Capital Tourism General Manager, Simonne Shepherd, said “The Canberra region offers a wonderful winter escape for couples. Bright sunny days will tempt you to explore the region’s national parks while boutique wineries, enticing restaurants, unique shopping precincts and special winter events create the perfect winter getaway for couples.

“Savour superb local cuisine and award-winning Canberra district wine by a crackling fire during the Fireside Festival. Join a truffle hunt or indulge in a sumptuous truffle degustation menu at one of the many restaurants taking part in the Capital Country Truffle Festival.

“Or visit the National Museum of Australia, Australian War Memorial, National Portrait Gallery, National Archives of Australia or the National Film and Sound Archive and reflect on the incredible people and events that shaped our nation.

“Our proximity to the snow is another appealing aspect of our destination and there are plenty of inviting accommodation packages that will tempt you to plan a Canberra stopover for your next snow trip.

“So don your favourite winter woollies and escape to a weekend of pure indulgence – you’ll be wrapt in winter when you take a short break to the nation’s capital.”
