Australian Capital Territory

The Australian Capital Territory was established in 1911 within the borders of New South Wales as the site for the future national capital, Canberra.
Nearly 300 km from Sydney and 650 km from Melbourne, Canberra is a planned city laid out around an artificial lake.
The territory became self governing in 1989.
