As Sydney was the fist town in Australia, they claim it to be. But Melbourne claimed it also as it is the biggest city early in 1900. They made some rules where the Capital has to build outside those 2 cities. A few of the rule are, must not to nearby Sydney and on the way to Melbourne (more or less one line).
They had found a flat pace of land and there is The Capital Canberra build. You will find the planning back in strait of the road lines of the city whith the places of importent builings. We are going to a Village Camping at the Nord-West side off the city. From where we can use a bus to get easy back to the centre.
