Embassy Drive

Landmarks and Buildings

Canberra is home to nearly 80 embassies and high commissions. Most are in the suburb of Yarralumla. Take a leisurely drive and see traditional and modern architecture from many countries. See the spectacular traditional design of the Chinese Embassy and the long-house style of the High Commission of Papua New Guinea. Look for the Mexican Embassy’s giant shingle roof and the United States Embassy built in a modified Georgian style. The traditional Cape Dutch style architecture of the South Africa High Commission contrasts with the striking design of the Thai Embassy Royal. See how many countries you can name!
