I've tried the textas that only draw on special paper with my 2yo, however the colour takes a little while to come up and she finds that a bit frustrating. Much better are the Melissa and Doug water colouring in books - the colour comes up immediately. And better still - they can be reused again and again! Great for some quiet time when out at a cafe etc.

We lived in a 2 bedroom apartment with no car and kids for years so it is doable :lol
(obviously not the same being in your own space and not worrying about mess etc, having connections and people to hang out with I know... but in terms of not having a yard or much play space indoors you will be ok)
Maybe look into the costs of annual passes to some of the museums etc in Canberra, if you go to one and really like it you might find it's worth buying the annual pass (even if only for 2 weeks, if you want to go every 2nd day or something). I don't know about Canberra but eg if you were in Sydney the Australian Museum and places like that have really good under 5s play spaces.
Even when we have heaps of toys at home our kids get bored of them.
When travelling/camping we've found the following good toys to take for little kids: small shoebox of duplo, 5-6 matchbox size cars, a few picture books, stickers
Could try kinetic sand in a tray on the balcony but I think at that age mine would have just thrown it everywhere and tried to eat it (from about 3 years they would have been better)
We go to ABA (Australian Breastfeeding Association) group locally and when I've travelled to visit family for a few weeks we dropped in to the local group there and were welcomed- they say you can go to any group locally.
