Australian Capital Territory Locations
Canberra is located in the Australian Capital Territory, which is surrounded by the state of New South Wales. Located on the ancient lands of the Indigenous Ngunnawal people, Canberra's name is thought to mean 'meeting place', derived from the Aboriginal word Kamberra.
The essence of Australia's culture, history and way of life is reflected in the national museums, galleries and institutions in Canberra. Celebrate Australia's proud sporting achievements at the Australian Institute of Sport, delve into Australia's unique political history at Parliament House and its predecessor Old Parliament House, reflect on the nation's experience on the international stage at the Australian War Memorial and view Australia through the eyes of our artists at the National Gallery of Australia.
