Australian Capital
Territory

Surrounding Canberra you’ll find rustic townships, historic homesteads and thick pockets
of bushland. Hikers, bird-watchers and nature connoisseurs will find half of the territory is
protected as national park or reserve. There is also accessible Aboriginal rock art and splendid
camping. For more genteel pursuits there are cool-climate wineries and the meandering Murrumbidgee River to explore. The surrounding region of southeast New South Wales boasts
snow fields, historic towns, more wineries and pristine lakes and rivers, and is yet another
reason to base yourself in the capital and see the sights.

AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL
TERRITORY

The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) was carved out of the Limestone Plains, a region of New
South Wales 280km southwest of Sydney and 150km inland from the coast. Its weathered
ranges, quintessential bushland and untamed landscape are a perfect partner to the tidy city
it cradles. Canberra, the Australian capital, is a geometrically designed urban centre, housing
the symbols and machinery of a nation’s aspirations. Planned to a fine point, it’s home to many
a national treasure, yet it has also evolved from its bureaucratic origins into a flourishing city
of multi-cuisine dining, modish bars and lively festivals. Students, public servants and artists
find themselves ushered here for opportunity, but remain after planting roots. As the nexus
of Australian political power, Canberra thrives on networking, business lunches and gossip.

Politics, scandals and the latest conspiracy theory are never off the agenda, and power brokers
or image breakers can be seen scribbling notes in a Manuka café or a Civic bar.
