The Area: Canberra
Canberra is a planned metropolis that architect Walter Burley Griffin envisioned as a garden city for some 25,000 people. Canberra is currently home to about 300,000 people. However, due to the unique sprawled and de-centralised design, the city maintains its small town atmosphere.
As well as being home to some of the country’s most significant monuments and museums, Canberra’s unique attractions include the annual ‘Celebration of Spring’ flower festival Floriade, in which more than a million blooms go into the show. As well as the stunning exhibits, there are also horticultural workshops, music, local artistry and events that include the spectacular Floriade NightFest. The stunning man-made lakes, hot air balloon displays, local wineries, fine dining, natural wildlife and blossoming nightlife all contribute to Canberra’s bush-city charm.
