It’s blooming beautiful in spring in Canberra when the parks, gardens and public spaces come alive with Floriade, Australia’s premier flower display. Studded with art and culture, this festival of flowers covers the city in a riot of colour. Spring is also the season for Bogong Moths who stopover in Canberra on their migration from the hinterland to the cool rock crevices of Australia’s alpine country. The moths’ abundance and rich tastiness made them a favourite for the region’s Aboriginal people who for thousands of years came together around Canberra to roast the moths and feast with family and friends. Today, most feasting is done in backyards on bbq’s or in one of Canberra’s many fine restaurants, with Bogong Moth occasionally on the menu.
Designed for political office and public enjoyment by the acclaimed architects Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahoney Griffin, Canberra is Australia’s national capital and home to some of the country’s great cultural drawcards including the National Portrait Gallery, the National Gallery of Australia, the Australian War Memorial, the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex and Parliament House. Deliberately located away from the pre-Federation cities of Sydney and Melbourne, Canberra is only a few hours’ drive from the amazing beaches of Jervis Bay and the stunning Snowy Mountains.
St John's Anglican Church in Reid is the oldest church in Canberra but the All Saints Church in Ainslie has the more fascinating history. Once a church, mortuary and train station combined in Sydney’s Rookwood Cemetery, this gracious building was bought, moved and rebuilt in Canberra stone by stone.
