Canberra, the capital of Australia is known for its lush green fields and ancient architectures. Imagine enjoying a cup of coffee at a height of 843 m on Mount Ainslie in Canberra Nature Park to get a breathtaking view of the modern city! You can also do the same at the Black Mountain Tower which is at 640 feet height offering you panoramic views of the city. The city is also known as bush capital due to its natural vegetation spread in large areas.
Let’s not talk much about the facts about the city and let me give you a clear idea about the 5 most visited places in Canberra. So this is it:
