      The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) was born of a dispute between Sydney and Melbourne, each competing to become the capital of the newly independent and federated Australia.

      Neither could bear for the other to triumph, so when a compromise was reached, a small chunk was carved out of New South Wales’ Limestone Plains 280km southwest of Sydney. This became the site for Canberra, and the country’s smallest self-governing territory.

      Australia's capital is cradled by mountain ranges and hills covered in bushland, beyond which are several charming villages and a growing number of cold-climate wineries which are just waiting to be explored by thirsty Lions fans.

      Half of the territory is protected as national park or reserve, with plenty to attract hikers, campers and nature-lovers of all kinds.
