About Canberra

The capital city of Australia. Like Washington D.C and Brasila, Canberra was especially designed and planned for this purpose. It is the eighth largest city in the country. Canberra, in the native Aboriginal language, means 'meeting place'. It is now a truly international and diverse meeting place that is home to both various immigrant groups as well as diplomats from countries all over the world.
 
Because of historical contention between Sydney and Melbourne, the capital location was carefully selected as a midway point between the two. The city's elegant layout was designed by American architect Walter Burley Griffin. Founded in 1927, Canberra has continued to evolve in line with Burley Griffin's plan until today.
 
That's why Canberra is one of the most well-designed cities in the world. In the city, there are strict zoning laws and development regulations. Local governments and construction companies are not allowed to disturbt the natural or urban environment too much. Municipalities are able to intervene in the regulation of private property in the outdoors aesthetics of the city as well as in the aesthetic arrangement of public areas.
 
Canberra is famous for its beautiful parks, its elegant flowers and the surrounding countryside, you can even sometimes see Kangaroos roaming about the green spaces of the city. Parliament House is located right in the middle of the city. Red Point, Black Point and Telstra Tower attract tourists the most. From the top of this panoramic observation tower, you can see just how well laid out and orderly the city is. Lake Regatta Point, National Carrillo, the Old Parliament House and National Museum of Australia are also major points of interest in the city.
 
Canberra has a warm and temperate climate. Canberra International Airport is located 8 km from the city center.
