Did you know Canberra is the capital of Australia? Located in the south-eastern part of the country, Canberra is sometimes referred to as “Bush Capital” because it’s surrounded by forested mountains and the famous Aussie bushland.
Here’s another fun fact: Canberra is an entirely planned city! In the early 1900s, it was designed specifically to be the capital of Australia and remains to this day one of the few planned capitals in the world.
But Canberra is not just a political hub. There’s something for everybody here. Visit the National Museum and learn about the country’s history, culture and customs. Travelling with children? Bring your little scientists over to the National Science and Technology Centre, where they can discover the future and take part in building robots. Education and games aside, Canberra is also home to a thriving shopping scene. Stroll through the nationally-award winning Old Bus Depot Markets and find a range of gifts and souvenirs to bring home to your loved ones. And be sure to visit Jerrabomberra Wetlands, located right in the heart of Canberra. A stone’s throw away from Parliament House at Capital Hill, the “Jerra” wetlands is a relaxing natural getaway and home to a great number of bird life, lush greenery and beautiful flowers.
