About Canberra, Australia
Located at the northern end of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), 280 km south west of Sydney, and 660 km north east of Melbourne, Canberra is the capital city of Australia. A population of more than 380,00 makes it Australia's most populous inland city. The garden city movement influenced the design of the city, which includes large swathes of natural vegetation that have inspired the nickname "bush capital."
Car rental in Canberra makes perfect sense, as driving is the principal mode of transport in the city. The city is laid out so that inhabited pockets are linked by arterial roads through undeveloped areas. Canberra is about a three-hour drive from Sydney on the Federal Highway (National Highway 23) and seven hours from Melbourne on the Barton Highway. The popular holiday resort of Batemans Bay is two hours away, using the King's Highway.
