Earlier this week, a New York Times article named Canberra the best place in the world to live, according to recent OECD data, and I kind of agree! Living in Canberra (or the Canberra region in my case!) is pretty awesome.
A lot of people are a bit down on Canberra. It’s our nations capital but majority of people overseas think Sydney is the capital of Australia. (It’s telling that no one in the world knows what or where Canberra is when the NYT article had to put “Canberra, Australia”. You wouldn’t get that with Sydney!!) Even Australians write Canberra off as ‘a bit boring’ and have been up in arms all week about Canberra being voted the most liveable place in the world, let alone Australia!
So for my Friday Five this week I thought I would let you in on five of the best things Canberra has to offer!
