The Canberra Business Chamber is thrilled that Canberra has been recognised as third in the world’s Top 10 Cities to visit in 2018.
The Lonely Planet acknowledgment is a true reflection of the concentrated, collaborative efforts and investment that our city has experienced over the past few years. A new found level of sophistication has been born and businesses are well placed to leverage this exposure to maximise opportunities from the Visitor Economy.
This important accolade compliments the continuous improvements of our facilities and experiences on offer—shining a spotlight on all facets of this great city. It has the potential to be a great boost for all businesses in our fast growing tourism sector, placing us squarely as a new star at centre-stage to the world.
Lonely Planet, the leading global travel authority, has named Canberra third in the world’s Top 10 Cities for 2018 in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2018—ranking higher than any Australian city has ever been ranked before in the travel publisher’s annual Top 10 Best in Travel lists.
According to Lonely Planet’s Chris Zeiher, author of the Canberra chapter in Best in Travel 2018 and Director of Sales and Marketing (Asia Pacific): “criminally overlooked Canberra packs a big punch for such a small city. National treasures are found round almost every corner and exciting new boutique precincts have emerged, bulging with gastronomic highlights and cultural must-dos.
