About 12km south east of Canberra is Queanbeyan. The small town was around long before Canberra, and up until 1838 was called Queen Bean. There is a good museum you should visit which tells the history of Queanbeyan, as well as a selection of reasonable accommodation including hostels.

For some great photos and views of the area head to Bungendore Hill and Jerrabomberra Hill.
