University House

University House is described as the ceremonial heart of Australia’s National University. It is a boutique hotel with a university vibe set in the cultural precinct of New Acton, an area that features restaurants, modern hotels, cinemas and galleries.

The grounds stretch down to the sparkling waters of Lake Burley Griffin. There you will find bicycle hire, cycle tracks, canoeing and sign-posted walks.


It was spring in Canberra in October (although not always spring like this year), and some attendees took the time to attend the Internationally renowned Floriade Festival, which is situated between the Parliamentary triangle and New Acton.  For other attractions in the Greater Canberra area please visit tripadvisor
