Packed with cultural treasures, Canberra is the carefully crafted capital of Australia. It's no accident that the city lies between Sydney and Melbourne. The site of the capital was chosen as a compromise between these two rival cities in 1908. Canberra is surrounded by vast Australian bushland. As you speed along the highway towards the Australian Capital Territory, it's easy to wonder how an entire city could simply emerge out of endless landscape.
