A Brief History
Europeans first arrived to Canberra in 1820 and created a settlement there in 1824. The area however had been inhabited by its traditional owners, the Ngunnawal people, for almost 20, 000 years. Once Australia gained independence in 1901, a debate began on which of the country’s two major cities should become capital – Melbourne or Sydney. Instead, a compromise was made and it was decided that a capital would be built somewhere between the two cities. Canberra was chosen as the new capital in 1908, and construction began to transform this sleepy town into a capital city. Architect Walter Burley Griffin was chosen to design Canberra into a well-planned city that included government buildings and residential areas. While population growth was slow at first, there was a boom in the number of people residing in Canberra following World War II. Ever since, Canberra has continued to grow into the cultural and historical hub that you can experience today with Brisbane to Canberra flights.
