Canberra and surrounding regions
Canberra is Australia’s capital city with a population of 358,000. It is 150km from Australia's east coast with an elevation of approximately 580m. The city's design incorporates significant areas of natural vegetation that has earned Canberra the title 'the Bush Capital'. A diverse range of ecosystems - eucalypt forests and woodlands, temperate rainforest, native grassland, and alpine, riverine and coastal habitats - all occur within a few hours of the city.
