Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center and Snowy Peaks Winery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Let the collections at Benson Park Sculpture Garden and Images of Rocky Mountain National Park capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Denver side-trips: Estes Park (Red Rose Rock Shop & Dick's Rock Museum, Brownfield's, & more), Wild Animal Sanctuary (in Keenesburg) and Rocky Mountain National Park (Emerald Lake Trail, Adams Falls Trail, & more). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at The Beach at Grand Lake, explore the striking landscape at Roxborough State Park, stroll through St Mary's Glacier, and explore the world behind art at Swetsville Zoo.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Denver International Airport and City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Denver can reach 35°C, while at night they dip to 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
