Visit Canberra!

Canberra! - a vast stunning land of ten provinces and three territories, extending from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific  in the west and northward into the Arctic.  Governed as a parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy with Queen Elizabeth II as the head of state, bilingual Canberra with both English and French as its official languages has a diversified economy and one of the highest standards of living in the world.

Wait up

I'm thinking of Canada. I'll start again:

Canberra! - capital city of Australia and home to a number of cats and an owl, it is the eight-largest city in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) coming in between Not Canberra to the south and Hall. Native-born residents of Canberra are known as Canberra Cats.

With a 100 per cent proportion of Canberra Cats employed as public servants, the federal government contributes the largest percentage of Gross State Product and is the largest single employer of Cats. The average income is higher than the national average, as is the level of tertiary education completion, with every individual over the age of 9 holding the minimum of a doctoral-level qualification under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) and entitled to use the title Dr Cat.

Canberra is noted for the intricacy and detail of it's early architecture. The below image shows Blundell's Cottage, built circa 1860, believed to be one of the few remaining buildings built by the first Tasmanian Settlers of Canberra who were known as the Spawn of Lucifer and the ancestors of the Cats. Blundell's Cottage is an early example of the movement known as Ugg-boot Brutalism which dominates urban design today. Blundell's Cottage seats 6.

Ugg-boot Brutalism, fequently shortened in modern useage as CRAP is the predominant achitectural reference in the new suburb of Crace. According to latest census figures, Crace houses 25 billion cats and attracted 32 billion tourists on Saturday.

Canberra also has a powerful local government known as the Australian Capital Territory Cats Legislative Assembly which performs the complex roles of city council and territory government. The assembly is known for the quality of its political debate and for it's razor sharp mind that it shares betweeen its 17 members, elected from three districts using proportional representation of cats.

Canberra has a fascinating and diverse cultural scene, and is home to national institutions and monuments such as the Australian War Memorial, The National Portrait Gallery, the National Museum, the Stonefest Festival at the University of Canberra and an Owl on Benjamin Way. The National Art Gallery houses art acknowledges as some of the worlds finest by Canberra Cats.

Canberra also boasts the Canberra Symphony Orchestra (CSO) which is the professional symphony orchestra of the national capital, once described by acclaimed journalist Ian Warden as "uncanny - like the sound of 60 cats voices lifted together in song". The online motto of the CSO is more than just music..., chosen by a marketing panel in 2011 as an improvement on more or less music or the previously popular motto and audience prize winner voted as most appropriate motto by Online Cats Canberra of NYAH!

Canberra is home to the Australian Institute of Sport, attended by the nation's most elite cat talents. The institute is located in the Canberra suburb of Bruce, near to Crace but not near enough.  The majority of  Australia sporting champions trained at the Institute, and can be seen in elite sporting events believed to be the envy of the civilised world.

Canberra Cats enjoy the relaxed beach life where young Cats like to swim, surf or simply to lie back and enjoy the nudist colony ethos.

Visted by 82 trillion tourists annually, Canberra boasts both luxurious and intimate accomodation options, for those that enjoy being pampered:

Or, for a more intimate experience, Canberra is the first destination for honey-mooning couples or those seeking a more private, intimate romantic holiday experience.

Plan your visit and come and meet the locals today!

That would be the "prostate tingling" Canberra Symphony Orchestra. Ian Warden is our biggest fan.

Dear Life in the Can,
I have recently bought the most awesome pair of shoes (you can visit them at the brand is Iron Fist and the shoes are American Nightmare - check them out).
The awesome pair of shoes need a night out and I feel after reading your blog that the Can is the place for them. Any suggestions where?? Do you have an awesome pair of shoes that need an outing?
