Canberra is a fascinating and quirky place. As it's the national capital there are heaps of interesting (and cheap or free) national institutions to visit ... and as we're pretty geeky we DO enjoy regular visits to all the galleries, archives, museums and parks. There are mountains to climb, bike paths to ride on, rivers ideal for swimming. You can see magnificent critters like lizards, kangaroos and colourful parrots in everyday locations. The restaurants are plentiful and the people friendly.
Soooo glad we moved here.
Thank you Canberra! It's been a blast.
