Queanbeyan is a city on the cusp of a dynamic transformation; from a sleepy historic town to a modern, cosmopolitan regional city with a vibrant dining scene, dynamic performing arts culture and a series of inspiring and immersive visual arts experiences.
Just three hours from Sydney, 10 minutes from Canberra and 1.5 hours from the beautiful beaches of the NSW South Coast or the Snowy Mountains, Queanbeyan is easy to access and the perfect base to explore the Southern Tablelands.
Take a short drive and you will also discover Googong Dam and the historical regional townships of Bungendore, Braidwood and Captains Flat.
Whilst visiting Queanbeyan, enjoy a vast array of things to see and do, from cultural and natural attractions, lively events and festivals, markets, historical landmarks and nature reserves. You’ll also enjoy art and sporting galleries, the printing and historical museums, a world class theatre and art works by local and regional artists and crafts persons.
Relax by the river (you may spot a platypus) and enjoy the newly established water park and playground or take a stroll through the interactive river sensory garden, where you can start your self-guided art walk or choose from a variety of other walks.
The city has a fascinating history and it has long been known that it was the residents of Queanbeyan who built the nation's capital. Queanbeyan is proud of its multicultural society and has the most diverse multicultural community outside of metropolitan Sydney.
