Greater Canberra Map:
Canberra is the capital city of Australia. It is located between Sydney and Melbourne (35°S, 149°E), in the Australian Capital Territory in southeast Australia. There are beautiful mountains, forests, and canyons within an hour or so drive. There are clear changes of the four seasons, such as a warm to hot summer, cold winter, colorful spring, and the beautiful orange leaves of autumn. Occasionally in winter it snows. Canberra is 571 m above sea level, and has a population of approximately 320,000 people.
Canberra was founded in 1913 which makes it a young city even by Australian standards. The planned layout and urban landscape reflect the city's major role as the seat of Federal Parliament and home to the national institutions that support it.
