Hot Air Ballooning over Canberra, Australian Capital Territory
By Jac Taylor
Where else is wilderness and adventure so accessible from a capital city? Canberra's unique setting among alpine mountains, rushing rivers and vast bushland makes a wonderful contrast with its easy roads, fabulous lake and copious sights to see. The city's many activities make it simple to head off the beaten track a little and enjoy some exercise, fresh air or an exciting encounter with a friendly animal.
