Capital city of Australia, suffers from hot summers and cold winters, and a severe lack of water.

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.
Sydney is commonly mistaken as the capital of australia by a large percentage of americans, and Canberra has only recently been mentioned in international news becouse of the Bushfires that affected it.

The city of Canberra was settled in 1789 by Sir Arthur Canberra while seeking out the perfect location for owners of the now legendary BMW 6 series to live and drive their vehicles.

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.
Canberra, there really is no better place in the world for owners of the BMW 6 series!

Canberra is technically the capital of Australia. It is a new city designed by a US Architect and since 1927 Australia's Federal Government has been based there (more than half the people living in Canberra are public servants), but Melbourne and Sydney still register as the capitals of Australia culturally and financially, in the Australian psyche. Most people outside of Australia think that Sydney is the capital, if they have even thought about it at all.

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.
sydney people: "did you see canberra on the way to the snow?"

"no there was just a roundabout"

The biggest hole known to man. Even the politicians don't stay for long, and no one outside of Australia knows that it exists.
Guy 1: Dude, I'm going to Canberra this weekend.
Guy 2: WHY?!
Guy 1: They're having an Impressionists exhibition.
Guy 2: Why don't you just save up and go see it in Paris?!
