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 colours || when a season is in season I fall in love with it all over again. It reminds me that it's been 12 months since this old friend was last in my life and I welcome it with opens arms. I took a stroll through Queen Elizabeth Terrace just before sunset and the autumn tree colours and green grass seemed to burst under the golden light ~ #humanbrochure #sunset #autumn

Last night || one my favourite places to photograph at #sunset is the Arboretum. The trees, the roads, the silhouettes, the landscape - it doesn't matter where you set yourself up, it always work. Next time you are in Canberra at sunset head there and see for yourself what i mean ~ #humanbrochure #road

It might be raining, it might be windy and it might even be freezing cold but I feel the need to walk between the beautiful grapevines in the very beautiful @fourwindsvineyard. Watching kids having fun & mom and kids strolling through the grapevine is equally joyful. I just love Autumn in Canberra. #humanbrochure #visitcanberra #seeaustralia #localscan #fourwindsvineyard #autumn #autumnleaves #autumnlove #autumncolours #thiscanberranlife

A trickle || Living in Kingston is versatile in terms of photography. There are a number of spots that at the right time will deliver some amazing shots - even if they are being taken with an iPhone... I haven't photographed the drains looking up at Parliament House before, and yesterday they were particularly pretty. ~ #humanbrochure #autumn #autumnleaves

Get along and see Monkey...Journey to the West while you can. Only on in Canberra for a short time! A great mix of witty dialogue, song, dance, puppetry and acrobatics. Funny stuff too! Great work by John Bell, Kim Carpenter, and their small but talented cast. #CanberraTheatre #Canberra #Humanbrochure

After the rain || does it get much better? I love when the sun breaks through the clouds and gleams over water, and the ground is sparkling after rain, and you get that glow in the distance because the sun rise only happened an hour ago... Sometimes, everything aligns... ~ #humanbrochure #sunrise #autumn

Wow, this space is really huge. They should store something in here, like, say, buses? Almost like a Bus Depot? Oh what's that? it's an Old Bus Depot? Hmm fancy that. Well they should definitely do SOMETHING with this space. What about a market? That could go down a treat. You could sell the best fresh OJ in the biz, the freshest jonquils and some cute crafty one offs. Hmm but what would we call it? If only there was an appropriate name for such a space... #humanbrochure #visitcanberra #localscan
