Canberra is Australia's national capital and the centre of government.
The city is 150 kilometres inland and 571 metres above the Pacific Ocean, 280 kilometres south west of Sydney and 660 kilometres north east of Melbourne.
Built in the early 1900s, Canberra was planned by American architect, Walter Burley Griffin, who won an international competition to design the city. His plan focused on geometrical, circular patterns and incorporating Australia's natural landscape.
Canberra lies on the ancient lands of the Indigenous Ngunnawal people, and its name is thought to mean ‘meeting place’, from the Aboriginal word ‘Kamberra’. It is home to important national institutions, including the Australian Parliament and the High Court of Australia. From Australia’s indigenous past and colonial history, to the modern multicultural country it is today, Canberra embodies the essence of Australia.
Canberra is a modern city, set within extensive parks and gardens and enjoys four distinct seasons. Discover the national attractions which house shared history, culture, flora, art, knowledge, law and identity with regular displays, tours and exhibitions. The climate and geography nourishes excellent food and wine which can be enjoyed in stylish restaurants, cafes, bars and shops. An extensive network of parks and reserves with walking trails and cycle ways offer wonderful recreation, exploration and rejuvenation opportunities. With a bustling calendar of events, festivals, exhibitions and tours, Canberra is full of unexpected delights.
