No Darling Harbour Bridge or the Great Ocean Road drive, but Canberra has its own uniqueness – a quiet, quaint charm with natural and manmade (Lake Burley Griffin, for instance) splendour with a dash of art and history.
The two photographs here present a sight that caught my eye on my first day in Canberra (last Saturday) – with Sydney Building on one side of the road and a similar Melbourne Building on the other.
On a cab ride, the driver told me that both Sydney and Melbourne were in the race to be named Australia’s capital city.
Canberra, just as picturesque, trumped the two!
