Located on the ancient lands of the Indigenous Ngunnawal people, Canberra’s name is thought to mean ‘meeting place’, derived from the Aboriginal word Kamberra. European settlers first came in the 1830s, and the area was chosen for the federal capital in 1908.

Canberra’s special contrast of nature and urban living was planned in 1912 by master designer, Walter Burley Griffin, a Chicago architect.

Canberra is often described by Australians who haven't been there as a boring town, full of politicians, bureaucrats - and not much else. But those who go there find beautiful galleries and museums clustered around a lake.

The Celebrate Canberra Festival, held over 10 days in March, marks the city's birthday with music, food, a mardi gras, displays, a raft race and a parade. March also brings the huge National Folk Festival to Canberra. Spring is celebrated with the Floriade Festival, when Commonwealth Park becomes a riot of floral colour.

The essence of Australia’s culture, history and way of life is reflected in the national museums, galleries and institutions in Canberra. These national icons hold and share the treasures of our nation, offering an intriguing insight into Australian character and democracy, and our journey from an Indigenous continent to a modern nation.

Canberra’s cool climate produces some award-winning wines grown around the townships of Murrumbateman, Hall and Bungendore. Local produce and creative chefs ensure a well-matched dining experience. Clubs and pubs are found in the city and some of the suburbs as well as cafes and restaurants.

The Canberra region offers a warm welcome with a huge choice of accommodation available to suit all tastes and budgets, including a range of high quality hotels and motels, serviced apartments, bed and breakfasts and backpacker accommodation at very affordable rates and a wide range of services. The region also has a number of tempting packages available throughout the year.
