Canberra
Far more than just a city of civil servants, Canberra is an oft overlooked beauty in the midst of Australia's inland hills, conveniently located between the ski slopes of Brindabella National Park and the beaches of the east coast. The country's history and culture are on proud display in the many museums, galleries and theaters, while innumerable green spaces and parks give the city a fresh vitality and colorful flair.
