Embassies, Canberra

As you’d expect from a capital city Canberra is full of embassies and consulates. Thanks to it’s planned nature they’re all pretty much in one area, on land owned by the Australian government and allocated out.

There are a huge range of architectural styles on display, most clearly representing the nationality of each country. Here are a few that caught my eye, in order – Papa New Guinea, China, New Zealand (new building under construction), Britain, Finland (very modern), America (the largest), Pakistan (bizarrely modern), South African (one of the oldest), Thailand, Japan (complete with cherry trees out back), and the residence of the Indonesian Ambassador.
