The Bush Capital
Australia’s capital city, Canberra, is colloquially known as the Bush Capital. Not only is it an inland capital in a land famously girt by sea, Canberra is also surrounded by the rugged bushland the country is known for. Much of that bushland weaves its way in from the fringes of the city right to its centre.
This image was created on a hike known as Frost Hollow to Forest in the Aranda Bushland, about 6km from Canberra’s CBD, which lies just the other side of Black Mountain, seen in the image.
