Canberra Urban Adventures is a family owned and operated partner of Urban Adventures, a member of the Intrepid Travel Group. We are local people who love sharing our local knowledge about Canberra and the nature of the bush capital, with a little of adventure. This usually involves pedals….on an electric bike around Lake Burley Griffin or in a pedal kayak on the lake.

Glide into the heart of Canberra on a safe, cruisy pedal kayak for unique water views of the nation’s iconic buildings and grand vistas. Take a break at a lakeside beach, with drinks and nibbles (included in price), to soak up the serenity. Then follow the setting sun – beckoning back past the water birds, to bid the day a fond farewell.

Discover why Canberra is known as the “bush capital”. Journey through parklands around the lake by electric bikes to the Australian National Botanic Gardens for a short walk to the red centre garden, past a waterfall and along a rainforest gully – with a bit of wildlife spotting on the way.

Stop for lunch and explore the stunning National Museum of Australia – where our stories come alive.

Welcome to the heart of a nation. From Reconciliation Place to Parliament House, the art galleries, National Carillon and ANZAC Parade – we get up close to our iconic national buildings, tree lined boulevards and parklands around Canberra’s central lake. An easy and fun way to get to know the nation’s capital.

Family Friendly


Experience both the stately and wilder sides of Canberra in one relaxing day — from the epic buildings at the heart of capital, to the buzz of the Kingston foreshore cafes, to the rolling park-lands and stunning hilltop vistas of the hilltop National Aboretum.

Best of all, our electric bikes glide you around the quiet cycle paths and up the hills with ease. An all-fun, no-worries way to get to know the bush capital.


Why let the water birds have all the fun?

Canberra’s national buildings and parades were designed to strut their stuff around a gorgeous central lake. These vistas are best experienced from the water. Or, you can choose to cruise the islands on the lake and the bushland and birdlife around the western lake. And all on no ordinary kayak… our Hobie pedal-drive kayaks provide a super stable, hands-free way to cruise the lake with ease.

Relax, kick back and enjoy life with the water birds for a while.
