Canberra is Australia’s Capital City, and although smaller than Sydney or Melbourne, there is plenty to discover. Here you will find museums, galleries, breweries and modern architecture alongside quiet nature of breathtaking mountains and valleys. It's no wonder the locals here love the lifestyle and landscape.
