Canberra is a city with a purpose. It was built specifically as the capital of Australia, and is a planned city with well laid out streets, parks and monuments. The city is full of history, making it a fascinating destination for any visitor to the country. It is also a city of the great outdoors, with many parks throughout the city and its suburbs, and wilderness surrounding the civilisation.
At Canberra’s centre is the parliament building, encircled by greenery and ring roads. Across the manmade Lake Burley Griffin is City Hill, encircled by the Vernon Circle road and surrounded by Canberra’s main shopping and dining areas. Nearby is the National Museum of Australia and the Australian War Memorial. Back across the lake with Parliament are the rest of the city’s VIP buildings, the National Library and National Gallery of Australia. Despite the serious nature of the city’s origins and industries, it is home to easygoing people, drawn there by government employment and the outdoorsy nature of the city.
Very close to the city centre are the Botanic Gardens, Mount Majura Nature Reserve and Black Mountain, all big areas of green and with plenty of walking tracks. There is also much parkland surrounding Lake Burley Griffin, and the other lakes in Canberra’s northern suburbs. For a more adventurous hike, just outside of Canberra is the Stromlo Forest Park, popular with mountain bikers, Kowen Pine Forest and the huge Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve.
Canberra is the centre of government and history in Australia, and it is also conveniently located close to both Sydney and Melbourne. A road trip from Canberra could reach one of these cities and further.
