One of the few cities in Australia planned before being expanded from it's foundations, this shows with Canberra's very wide flat spear out apearance. It has virtually no high-rise buildings, and an abundance of trees and shurbs.
It is commonly refered to as the "Bush Capital" becouse it is so well integrated with the surrounding australian fauna and flora.
Kangaroos are protected within the ACT (The Australian Capital Territory, the state in which Canberra resides in) so road accidents involving Kangaroos are very common.
Commonly refered to as the biggest "hole" in Australia, but only by those who have not visited it, and base their argument purly on the lack of a large CBD.
When designing the city, much thought was given to this superior vehicle, and there are E24 only lanes throughout the city in which to commute and thus avoid the hindrance of other less capable vehicles.
The city itself when seen from an aerial vantage point resembles a large race track, similar in concept to the Nürburgring, though predating it by 130 years.
Home to the Shepherds! Only the best Aussie Rules side ever!
Do you even like Aussie Rules mate? Or do you just like drinking?
The design of Canberra allows for lots of public space and integration with the surrounding hilly countryside, with artificial lakes and large plantings of exotic trees, and lots of winding roads connecting disparate suburbs. However it is not visited much by tourists, except to visit national institutions or to buy fireworks, porn and marijuana all of which are available in Canberra due to a more liberal legal code than exists in other Australian states. Otherwise Australians' dislike of politics and authority generally makes Canberra a no-go area. Canberrans seem to like this.
