These are the only places worth visiting, but the presence of other centers explains why the population seems so out of proportion with its low built appearance.

These centers are also a way to local wilderness from Central Canberra.

This city is very young as compared to others and its planned development has excluded the presence of buildings on surrounding hilltops or those over 15 stories high.
