A planned city with streets laid out in elaborate, geometric patterns and founded specifically to serve as the capital of the emerging Australian state, Canberra has a self-sufficient atmosphere.

And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Australian War Memorial, don't miss a visit to Mount Ainslie Lookout, identify plant and animal life at Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary, and engage your brain at Geoscience Australia.
