Canberra Coat of  ArmsSatellite view is showing Canberra, the national capital of Australia. Australia's largest inland city is located in the southern part of New South Wales at the northern end of the Australian Capital Territory, one of the self governing territories of Australia. The city is situated 660 km (410 mi) north east of Melbourne and about 300 km (180 mi) southwest of Sydney.

Canberra is the seat of the government of Australia, the site of Parliament House, the High Court of Australia and numerous government departments and agencies.

On the map you can see that Canberra is a planned city. Australia became an independent nation on 1 January 1901 and the country was in need for a capital. The site where Canberra should be built was selected in 1908 and construction begun five years later in 1913. The city's layout is based on geometric shapes like circles, hexagons and triangles.
Today the Nation's Capital has a population of about 381,000 inhabitants (in 2014).

Just Zoom in to see Parliament House, the meeting place of the Parliament of Australia. At the time of its construction (prior to 1988) it was the most expensive building in the Southern Hemisphere.
