Enjoy a special day with your loved ones
After such an uncertain year, it is comforting to know that families and friends will be together this Christmas. Each year around Canberra, hotels and restaurants open their doors so that locals and visitors can gather together and enjoy the festivities, without the washing up afterwards! Venues book out fast and even this year, as I write this article, the Boat House on Lake Burley Griffin has already booked out for Christmas Day.
Here are just 5 of the venues that will be opening the doors to couples, groups and families and hosting a COVID-safe Christmas. After such a crazy year, let's enjoy Christmas this year and look forward to a much brighter 2022!
