Come with us to a city of light and grace, a meticulously planned metropolis, the symbolic heart of a nation. Enter new Parliament House, uncover the myth and meaning of its design, from the gathering of Aboriginal clans depicted in the mosaic of the Forecourt to the marble columns of the Foyer, reminiscent of a refreshing eucalypt forest.
Experience the mood of old Parliament House, now a museum of political history and the Australian War Memorial, shrine to fallen war heroes. Discover the impressive architecture of Canberra's High Court, the National Library, the Science and Technology Centre and the many unique embassies. Visit Cockington Green, a surprising slice of England in miniature, the National Aquarium, largest synthetic salt water aquarium in the Southern Hemisphere and the Australian National Botanic Gardens, a treasure trove of native plants.
Recapture a bygone era at Lanyon Homestead, view waterbirds in the vast wetlands of Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and frolic in the snow of Thredbo and Charlotte Pass. We take you to Cooma, Jindabyne and Mt Kosciusko and then to the annual Floriade in Commonwealth Park, all this and more in Panorama Australia's superb video of Canberra.
