There is a lot to do and see in Canberra
Canberra, situated inland from Australia's southeast coast, is surrounded by forest, farmland and nature reserves – thus its nickname, the "Bush Capital”. The city's focal point is Lake Burley Griffin, filled with sailboats and kayaks. On the lakeshore is the strikingly modern Parliament House, as well as a vast collection of museums, including the National Gallery, known for its indigenous art collections.
