Old Canberra Inn

Pub in Dickson

Coming and going a few times over the last 160 years, Canberra's oldest pub is once again thriving. Today it pours a changing roster of craft beers in sprawling beer gardens with live local music most weekends. In winter there's a crackling fire and several snug spots.

The pub grub – including parmas and burgers, with handcut chips – is better than most.
