Canberra - Australia's Capital region
Canberra became the site for the newly federated nation of Australia in 1908 by a ballot in Parliament after extensive searching. The Indigenous peoples of this area have lived here for over 20,000 years. Since 1913 the city has grown to become the proud home of the Australian story.
Canberra is a fantastic base from which to explore the many treasures of the surrounding New South Wales region. Explore historic townships, natural wonders, extensive and varied wine regions, beautiful coastlines of the South Coast and Mount Kosciuszko, Australia's highest peak in the beautiful Snowy Mountains.
Plan a drive holiday and make time to linger longer and enjoy all the region surrounding the nation’s capital has to offer.
