The capital of Australia, Canberra is situated on the country’s southeastern Coast. Unlike any other place on the continent, Canberra is unique in that it was fully planned. Instead of developing organically, the city was meticulously designed to hold the main seat of the Federal Government. Designed by the American architect Walter Burley Griffin, the city is notable for its hexagonal and concentric streets and its Parliamentary Triangle – also known as the National Triangle – which is home to some of Australia’s most important buildings. Despite being planned down to a t, the city is surrounded by a wealth of natural beauty including the Brindabella Ranges and some rare species of eucalypt. Canberra’s restaurant scene is notable too, and the city boasts some well-known eateries that can compete with those in Sydney and Melbourne. From Asian to Italian and everything else in between, Canberra’s restaurants offer something for just about everyone.
