CANBERRA is the capital of Australia and one of its largest cities.
It lies quite far from Sydney and Melbourne, two other cities that used to compete for the status of national capital. The city is located not far from the Brindabella Ranges and slightly more than an hour drive to Australia's east coast. Lake Burley Griffin is located in central Canberra and divides the city on northern and southern parts. Canberra is a very green city due to the garden city movement and thus is sometimes referred to as the "bush capital". Canberra became the capital of the Australian nation in 1913 and since then it has become a house of the government of Australia, the High Court and other very important agencies of national significance.
