Canberra is the Capital of Australia
Awesome places to visit. Australia, “down under” is a big country, from Tasmania in the South to Northern Territory and Western Australia to Queensland in the East but Canberra is the capital city of Australia, contrary to the belief of most non-Australians. When speaking to people outside of Australia there is an impression that Sydney is the Capital, which is not true, but I can understand where they come from, Sydney does feature a lot in the media and therefore assumptions are made. There was a big rivalry between Melbourne [Victoria] and Sydney [New South Wales] to be the capital but the final decision was to have the parliament in Canberra [ACT or Australian Capital Territory]. Nevertheless, there are so many awesome places to visit in Australia that we don’t really care about the capital that much. Places we recommend you do visit is Frase Island, the great barrier reef, great ocean road, twelve apostles, Sydney Harbour, the Grampians and many more that we will try to cover in future.

Whatever you do, think or plan, don’t miss the Great Barrier Reef.
The Twelve Apostles and the great ocean road should also be very high on the agenda when travelling Australia.
