Overall, a nice place to see. I cam here on a drive between Sydney and Melbourne and it was worth the visit.

Canberra is capital city, with life-style of village. There are very nice nature around and I love the War memoriam which was the best I seen in Canberra.

There are lots of places on Canberra where you can go and just enjoy the nature and relaxing. This was taken up the hill at weston Creek just at the back of the house. Walking the dog when it's sunset time is the best time, and you'll find a lots of kangaroo around you....
