Other popular spots include the National Zoo and Aquarium, the National Arboretum, and the Telstra Tower, which is 640 feet tall and has a café and observation deck.

For those who are into culture and history, museums and galleries are popular places to visit. You will have to leave your bags with one of our Bounce partners because they are not allowed in most establishments. Here are a few of our favorite choices:
National Museum of Australia: Established by the National Museum of Australia Act of 1980, the National Museum of Australia on Lennox Crossing has over 50,000 years of historical artifacts and exhibits.
