The Answer: Canberra

16 May

Most of you got this right, which is good since I’d bet the majority of Americans would say Sydney. No one voted for Wellington, while, although a capital city, is not part of Australia. Good on you!

Canberra is part of the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), which, like Washington DC, is not part of any state.

    Bill Bryson’s book ‘A Sunburned Country’ talks about Canberra. I’m sure you’ve read this book.

      Yep. I finished it right after we got here, but I’ll probably read it again before we leave.

    That’s how I knew about Canberra too!
