Capital Hill

The grassy rise of Capital Hill is Canberra’s crowning feature. The perfectly circular hilltop locale is the core from which the rest of the city radiates.

Its grand boundary road encloses Canberra’s primary piece of architecture: Parliament House. Inside, Australia’s politicians discuss the daily debate. Take a walk around Capital Hill’s tree-lined lawns and experience the different faces of this intricately designed city. To the west, a little patch of remnant bushland provides a peephole into the past.
