Canberra & The Australian Capital Territory (ACT)

The ACT lies in the southeast of New South Wales. It covers 2,366 sq km and features rugged blue-grey ranges in the south and west, with Canberra, located in the northeast corner. The splendid ridges, forests and pristine rivers and waterholes of Namadgi National Park cover 40% of the territory.

Summer days across the ACT range from warm to hot, though the temperature doesn't often get to 40ºC. Winter days are cool and sometimes gloriously sunny, with little wind, and often start with early morning frost and fog. Winter nights hover around 0ºC during July. Canberra gets a lot of sunshine and receives an annual average rainfall of 630mm, most of it falling in the west of the territory. Snow in the city is rare, falling twice a year at most, but is more common in the ranges of Namadgi National Park.
