Canberra is a fitting name for the nation’s capital, as Canberra is derived from the Aboriginal word “Kamberra” meaning “meeting place”- and Canberra sure it that. Each year, millions of people travel to Canberra to experience its vibrant, cosmopolitan nature paired with national, historical and cultural attractions. This city has show-stopping monuments such as the Australian War Memorial, Parliament House, the National Gallery of Australia, the National Museum of Australia and the beautifully laid out garden city.

The Bush Capital has, within its city limits, Black Mountain, Red Hill, Mount Ainslie, Majura, Taylor and Pleasant – all wonderful places to roam around. Within a 45-minute drive of Canberra is Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve where native animals, including kangaroos and emus, roam free.
