This week, 5000 people from across the country and internationally will meet in Canberra for the Kanga Cup.
The annual Capital Football soccer event has more than 350 teams take part and celebrate the sport they love so much. But - while some might disagree - there is more to life, and Canberra, than soccer.
Here are some options that might not be the obvious choices.
Get close to nature
Canberra's the bush capital so why not embrace it?
Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is always a good option as there is plenty of wildlife to check out. If you're a fan of hiking Namadgi National Park's Booroomba Rocks Walk is also a good option, particularly if you're wanting a good Instagram shot.
Of course, there's always Mount Ainslie, which also gives you a good view of the entire city. For the history buffs, you can also compare how Walter Burley Griffin's vision for the city was brought to life.
For those wanting to get in touch with nature in a more confined environment, the National Arboretum has a boundless landscape to explore and for those with younger kids who want to create their own adventure, there's the Pod Playground as well.
The Australian National Botanic Gardens is also a relaxing way to spend an afternoon, and for the July school holidays, there is a dinosaur adventure trail.
If you haven't gotten enough of nature yet, fear not because there is plenty more to do.
The National Zoo and Aquarium offers close encounters with some of their residents, so if you have ever wanted to meet a cheetah or see a baby giraffe, now is your chance.
For fans of all things scaly, there's also the Canberra Reptile Zoo, which has more than 50 different species of reptiles and frogs.
To top it all off, why not pay a visit to the National Dinosaur Museum (and continue your love of the prehistoric from the Botanic Gardens)? Their residents are a little quieter than at the zoo, but it is home to one of the largest permanent displays of dinosaurs and prehistoric life in Australia.
Fun and games
If you're interested in playing a different kind of game there are some out of the box ideas.
If you like to puzzle solve there are multiple escape rooms across Canberra that are worth a visit. Each room is specially designed with a series of puzzles that need to be solved in order to escape the room.
For those wanting to be a little bit more active, out in Fyshwick there is both Breakr and Axxe. You can be completely thrown by Axxe (in a good way) when you get to live out any Viking dreams you may or may not have by throwing axes at a target.
Next door, any tension you didn't get out at Axxe can certainly be fixed at Breakr, where you literally go around smashing things with your choice of tool.
Or, for the parents who have kids driving them up the wall, why not take them to BlocHaus Bouldering? That way they can be the ones climbing up the wall, while you just hang out for a while.
