About the Australian Capital Territory
Canberra was a purpose-build capital of Australia, which is why you probably won’t ever see a traffic jam while you’re there – the roads are far too cleverly constructed for any of that nonsense. Establised in 1913, the entire city was primarily designed by Walter Burley Griffin – who, of course, had the city’s only manmade lake named after him. A buzzling mini metropolis, many say you can 'feel the power' of Canberra and most people you meet there will be employees of the Australian Federal Government or Defence Force. Whether you want to check out future employment opportunities, delve into some Australian history or pay tribute to our fallen war heroes, Canberra is a unique holiday destination for everyone.
