Delve Deep into the Delights of Canberra
For decades, Canberra has continued to trip up pub quiz participants all over the world. Sydney is widely - and falsely - thought of as the country's key city, when in fact Canberra is officially recognised as Australia's capital, and has been since 1927. Designed by Walter Burley Griffin as a garden metropolis, Canberra has blossomed into something far beyond this architect's wildest dreams over the past few decades. This area of Australia erupted after WWII into a city that people flocked to for all kinds of reasons, be it political debates, big business deals, sports events, nightlife, nature explorations or the wide array of festivals that take place year upon year. A lively city that sees large influxes of tourism from all corners of the world, Canberra has much to offer its visitors.
