    We are considering a 1-2 week stay and have a few questions: (1) Is there a grocery store within (short) walking distance? (2) Is the kitchen in the 2-bedroom apartment well equipped? (3) Are there adequate laundry facilities? (4) Would the main Canberra attractions be accessible without a rental car? Thank you!
