This summer’s devastating bushfires have taken a toll on our community. Our local businesses are doing it tough – with some shutting their doors, jobs being lost and impacts being felt across the city.

You can help give our restaurants, hotels and attractions a boost this autumn by taking a staycation in your home city or playing tourist with family and friends.

There are so many Canberrans who rely on tourists to survive, and you can help stop this environmental tragedy from becoming an economic one.

Spend a few weeks playing tourist in your city. Discover somewhere new. Explore hidden gems.

Whether you’ve lived here your whole life, or are new to the ACT, there is so much to do and explore across the ACT.

Find some ideas and plan your staycation now at visitcanberra.com.au/holiday-here

Share your favourite holiday here moments with the rest of Canberra at #HolidayHereCBR.
