About Canberra

Canberra is the capital city of Australia. It is Australia's largest inland city and its eighth-largest metropolitan area in the world. It was established as the capital of the new nation after the Commonwealth of Australia. The city is at the northernmost point of the Australian Capital Territory and the northernmost point of Australia's highest mountain range, the Australian Alps. Canberra's projected population in June 2021 was 453,558. Indigenous peoples of Australia lived in the capital city for up to 21,000 years, with the Ngunnawal being the predominant ethnic group. Historic sites such as St. John's Anglican Church and Blundell's Cottage show that European colonisation began in the first half of the 19th century. The Commonwealth of Colonies of Australia was completed on January 1, 1901. After lengthy debates over whether Sydney or Melbourne should be the capital, a compromise was reached that the new capital would be New South Wales, as long as it was at least 100 miles (100 miles) from Sydney. The city offers students many adventurous and fun opportunities.
