Celebrating Canberra’s Centenary
2013 marks 100 year’s since the naming of Canberra, our national capital and home of the Australian story. The Centenary of Canberra offers an opportunity for Australians to revisit and re-imagine their national capital-the city that tells the story of our country’s freedom of spirit, achievements and aspirations. Visit Canberra100 for the year-long program of celebrations.
Canberra Tourism’s website also provides advice on what to do in Canberra during Autumn 2013.
