The story of our nation’s capital.

In 1901, when the six British colonies of early Australia came together to form one country, a new capital city was proposed. But why was Canberra selected? And how did it become an important treasure trove of historical, artistic, sporting and scientific achievement?

Discover Canberra - the federal capital of our great nation.

2013 is Canberra’s centenary year. All Australian upper primary school students study Canberra.
