The best wineries to visit in Canberra

The Canberra Wine Region

Known for its cool climate and rich soils, Canberra is a premier wine region situated just a 3-hour drive (approximately 280km) away from Sydney. The area's unique geography and climate have made it a favoured location for wine production in Australia.
