Architecture fans are in for a treat in Canberra, with a large number of interesting buildings in a small area, with surprising variety and heritage for a city only a hundred years old (which didn’t really grow until the 1950s).
It says something about the relatively young age of Canberra, little more than fields when it became the Australian capital in 1913, that there isn’t a national Cathedral. There are however a handful of attractive churches, in particular the rather lovely and very English St. John’s, just off ANZAC Parade.
Few randoms to finish with. The cafe at top of Red Hill, Chinese gardens by Lake Burley Griffth, random building, the historic Calthorpes House, a bridge across the lake, and the Canberra Theatre Centre.
