I'm not sure how to rate a university as a tourist attraction, but the ANU campus is very pleasant to wander through audits many trees provide lots of shade on hot days.

Been going here for like 6 years now. Always a pretty place. There's an old game of find an IR student who ISN'T doing Law. If you can do that, legend has it that you'll be made an honourary professor

So many young minds working hard here as it is a research facility mainly. The lovely grounds are nice to walk in.
