Description

more
Canberra is a meeting place where, over time, peoples’ connections with the land have left distinctive marks. Some of these marks have become national icons immediately identifying Canberra as the nation’s capital. Others are more subtle reminders of an age before parliament came to the Limestone Plains of New South Wales. Beside these stand the marks of the Ngunnawal people, whose living culture connects the land with its Aboriginal origin.Canberra Tracks immerses you in the rich tapestry of Canberra’s early beginnings as you connect with the lives of early inhabitants. Creative Common By Attribution 4.0 (Australian Capital Territory), Please read Data Terms and Conditions statement before  data use.
