Australia’s capital city, Canberra, is nestled between two mountains – Black Mountain and Mt Ainslie and is located on the ancient lands of the Indigenous Ngunnawal people, who call it “Kamberra” meaning “meeting place”.

Australia’s capital city, Canberra is full of surprises! There is really no other place where so much is all so close. Canberra City is known as “Civic” and is situated on the banks of Lake Burley Griffin (named for the architect of the city) and is dotted with interesting places to visit and engage with. It forms one point of the “Parliamentary Triangle” together with Parliament House and Defence Headquarters. It sounds serious, but it is jam-packed with fun family activities.

As the national capital, Canberra has some significant cultural landmarks – The Australian War Memorial, Parliament House (new and old), National Library, National Carillon, Royal Australian Mint, National Museum and many more.

You will never be bored in Canberra, with so much open space and places to visit – it is the perfect family friendly city!
