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.

I was on my way up to Dairy Farmers Hill to meet a couple of friends for a sunset shoot, which turned out to be quite a glorious sunset. I couldn't help but stop first to take this shot of #nationalarboretumcanberra looking so fine under the epic cloud cover. #Canberra #CBR #visitcanberra #humanbrochure

Love it when my chef buddies do speciality foodie courses. Getting my 'quality control' & 'taste tester' on.... Passion fruit & aromatic curry chocolate. What's a random chocolate combo you've tried? #humanbrochure #chocolatier

I branched out from my usual coffee haunt and visited Loading Zone this morning. Such a quaint little cafe and the coffee was excellent. I need to make a return trip for food though as it smelt amazing! #humanbrochure

Bright spark || the sun made a spectacular descent last night throwing its golden rays over everything it could reach. If you have a chance head over to the arboretum at sunset. You won't be disappointed ~ #humanbrochure #natarboretum #Sunset

Last weekend, I shot my first #wedding, ever, and I have to say Black Mountain Peninsula provided for one very fun and cool spot to shoot. I made the bride and groom do a lot silly things on the pier and around the peninsula. In this image they are creating a bit of Fred Astaire's 'Singin in the Rain'. An absolutely fun day!!!! #humanbrochure #visitcanberra #australia #seeAustralia #wedding #bride #groom

#Sunset with friends || one of the nicest things about being part of the #humanbrochure is that I found some like minded friends who will brave the cold wind atop the arboretum to wait for the sun to set. I found this small patch of flowers that looked lovely against the glowing sun ~ #natarboretum

I am so excited. My parents are flying in for a visit tomorrow (at very short notice) and I have just been offered tickets to attend the Canberra Theatre Centre to see Pat Metheny Unity Group - a jazz ensemble, which means that I get to take Dad (who used to be in a jazz band) with me! What a treat!! #humanbrochure

The @canberratheatrecentre is turning 50 in 2015. So many memories of going to see performances there, from theatre and ballet, to bands & musicians and my own children up in stage performing. #CTC50 #humanbrochure #canberra #theatre

Still waters || a little bench, a great view, some time to sit and relax... It is the simple things that bring us joy, and in that joy we can find meaning for the bigger things... Happy Tuesday everyone, make today, a joyous day! ~ #humanbrochure #stirlingpark #lakeburleygriffin
