I am hunting around for a number of free things to do in Canberra. Not only do the kids want something to do, but I have a number of unemployed or student friends who have no jobs, and consequently little money. I know there are the old stand bys of the national gallery, the botanic gardens and gardens by the lakes, but what else is there to do for free or nearly free in Canberra? Not just in the center of town, but also the suburbs such as Woden, Gungahlin and so on?
Also, how about a wide category of things to do, like cultural things, sporty things, things to do in groups and things to do alone, things to do with kids, and without kids?
Thanks in advance.
