Humans love to share

What’s a Human Brochure?

We think the best way for you to learn about Canberra is through the eyes of people who have been here.

So we invited 500 humans, just like you, to come and experience our city first hand and spread the word online about all the great things they got up to.

That’s how the Human Brochure was created. Here you will find real travel experiences shared by humans for humans. They prove that when you look closely, there are loads of attractions, experiences and fun you can have here.

Whether you’re a foodie, family, adventure seeker, lover of art and culture, or all of the above, you’ll find plenty of like-minded humans on this site whose journeys you can follow. Then you’ve got all the information you need to plan your own amazing getaway in our nation’s capital.

We hope to see you soon.



#Autumn colour in #Canberra #suburb no 27#Banks. The mountain views from here are just amazing. Particularly as a storm approaches. #humanbrochure

I discovered a new spot to see sunsets this evening. There's a beautiful hidden little park at Yarralumla. I don't even know this little park existed. Oopsie..... Lesson learned, never stop exploring! Good night #CBR. #sunset #visitcanberra #seeaustralia #humanbrochure

Lined up || I was driving to get to an event the other day just as the sun was setting. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a stretch of trees bathed in a golden light. I was late. I couldn't stop to capture the moment. I went back today and while the light wasn't as perfect as when it caught my eye the first time, it still provided a wonderful warmth to the trees. With daylight savings happening this weekend, I foresee a lot more opportunities to catch the right light ~ #humanbrochure #lakeburleygriffin #trees

It is spring school break in Canberra. The sun is out so am enjoying an alfresco ladies lunch with my little lady at Da Rosario, the cutest outdoor cafe in Canberra. #visitcanberra #humanbrochure #101localhumans #cbr #canberra #localscan #tweetcanberra #tastecanberra #tasteaustralia #darosario #alfresco #cafe

#suburb no 25 was the wonderful #curtin in #Canberra. I found so many amazing things here....the bookshop from heaven, wonderful fresh vegies at @chokubaijo, gf foodie heaven at the local unpretentious cafe, yarralumla creek and gorgeous sunsets. I think I need to live here and this house has a mural that was clearly painted for me :) #humanbrochure #visitcanberra

Celebrating a public holiday (and it is finally t-shirt weather) in Canberra by taking my family for a walk around the Australian National Botanic Gardens. I love the tranquility and diversity of the thematic gardens. My favourite was the Red Centre section. #humanbrochure #101localhumans #visitcanberra #canberra #tweetcanberra #spring #seeaustralia #australia #redcentre #australiannationalbotanicgardens #familytravel #familytravelmonday #anbg
