Entertainment and nightlife
Nightlife - live it up!
See the capital by night. Tucked away in the city and surrounding suburbs are many traditional pubs, stylish cocktail lounges, pumping club and bars offering live music, beer gardens and live sport. After dark you can also hit the casino, cinemas and see live performing arts.
For family fun after dark, head to Black Mountain Tower, Red Hill or Mount Ainslie lookouts to see the sparkling lights of the city. Try ice-skating for an evening session, tenpin bowling or catch the latest blockbuster at the cinema.
