Canberra is the capital city of Australia. With a population of 358,000, it is Australia’s largest inland city. The city is located 280 km south-west of Sydney, and 660 km north-east of Melbourne. The site of Canberra was selected as the nation’s capital in 1908 as a compromise between Australia’s two largest cities; Sydney and Melbourne. It is unique among cities as the only entirely planned city in Australia. The city’s design incorporates significant areas of natural vegetation which has earned Canberra the title of the “bush capital”.
As the seat of the Australian government, Canberra is the home of Parliament House, the High Court and numerous other government departments. It is also host to many institutions of social and cultural significance, such as the Australian War Memorial, Australian National University, Australian Institute of Sport, National Gallery, National Museum and the National Library.
