When it comes to eating out, you’ll be spoilt for choice– there are hundreds of award-winning restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs and clubs scattered throughout Canberra. From Chinatown in Dickson, fine dining in the city, casual suburban cafes and gastro-pubs - there’s something for every taste.

Kingston and Manuka, Canberra’s best known cosmopolitan café suburbs, have trendy boutique shopping as well as fantastic restaurants and bars that are popular on the weekend for catching up with friends for dinner, coffee or a drink.

If you fancy sampling some of the local vintage there are over 30 regional wineries scattered across the capital region. The district's vineyards produce diverse varieties and styles of cool climate wines distinct to our region, and most are located within 40 minutes drive. Canberra also has two boutique breweries,

When it’s time to re-stock the pantry you’ll never be far from a grocery store. All of the well-known major stores are represented in the city and town centres. Smaller shops located in most suburbs cater for those things you need in a hurry or for a casual meal. Canberra’s wonderful array of regional produce can be purchased at a number of fresh food markets located around the city.
