"The centre of Canberra is not..." Shopping Tip by Ronald_T

Shopping, Canberra: 2 reviews and 2 photos


Favorite thing: <body>
<p><font face='Times New Roman' size='4'>The <b>centre of Canberra</b> is not so big (compared with Sydney) as you know Canberra counts only 311000 inhabitants. It is also known that Canberra is the fastest growing city of Australia with <b>7.2%</b> people a year. But one thing is a fact; Canberra has an enjoyable commercial centre (also known as <b>Civic</b>), and at least not so busy as the other main city's. It's a great feeling walking in the centre without passing cars and you find nice shops and café's all around the place. Its even difficult to get lost in the centre because you always coming back to the fabulous <b>merry-go-round</b> (<font color='#0000FF'>see picture</font>) in the middle of the town. Notice the old city centre around the
<b>Norhbourne Avenue</b> (where you also find the <b>Melbourne building</b>) that has fine eateries and shops that are quite tempting as you walk around that place.</font></p>
