Canberra is modern city, set within extensive parks and gardens and enjoys four distinct seasons. The city is the national capital city and is the home of the Australian story. Located on the ancient lands of the Indigenous Ngunnawal.

The national capital’s four distinctive seasons bring their own beauty and charm, making Canberra a rare treat among Australian cities providing a kaleidoscope of colour throughout the year.
