There’s plenty to fall in love with when you visit Australia’s national capital, including glorious tracts of inner city bush, dozens of magnificent architectural works and some of the most inventive restaurants in the country. For 10 days each March, Canberra shines a light on the best of these attractions in Enlighten, an eclectic, unpredictable festival that kicks off when the sun goes down.
Autumn nights in Canberra are dry and mild, so there’s no need to pack a heavy coat. Just don’t forget to charge your smartphone – all Enlighten attendees are encouraged to create photo art of their own and share it via Instagram.
Here are the attractions you’ll definitely want to snap at this year’s festival.
