Once again we find ourselves in Canberra for work and play, so the Forrest was our first thought for accommodation. The one bedroom apartment has a full kitchen, sitting room, big TV, DVD and iPod dock sound system, perfect for a weekend or longer if you can...
Warm, comfortable and very, very quiet is a bonus in any city.
A short stroll to Manuka (which the inhabitants insist on mispronouncing as 'Marnika' for some bizarre reason, have they never tried the honey ?!?!) where Shopping and eating in any language is very easy, from the burger bars to fine dining, you will find something to enjoy.....though despite all the space in this city, parking can be a chore.
Short drive to Kingston is worth doing for Silo Bakery....expect to wait, a table is nigh on impossible, but the fayre is just superb, with a cheese room for an in-room or outdoor picnic to remember
Will certainly be back when next in town
