The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) was created by the Australian Constitution in 1901 to be a government base between the major centres of Melbourne and Sydney. Canberra, the only city in the territory, is the federal government capital of Australia.
This 2400 square kilometres territory is bordered on all sides by New South Wales and is situated very close to the Snowy Mountains region. The ACT is unique in that more than 70 per cent of the territory is designated as National Park or Natural bushland — making it a bushwalker’s paradise.
Summer is warm (25 – 30) with a fair amount of rain. Winter is cooler (5 – 15) with little rain and colder temperatures in the surrounding highlands.
