Enlighten 2013 - Canberra

Canberra officially became Australia’s capital in 1913 – 100 years ago! Visitors to Canberra are always delighted, and enlightened, by the city’s extraordinary historical and cultural landmarks including Parliament House, the National Gallery, The Australian War Memorial, Questacon and, of course, the annual Floriade display.
