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.

A Swallow saying OI to another swallow that is flying towards the first swallow. The reason for the OI saying is beyond my ken, but I'm glad they were sitting still or at least moving less fastly so I could take some photos of them yelling at each other. #humanbrochure #visitcanberra #localscan #igerscanberra

Yes, Marina did try to steal rusty on the pretext of keeping him calm... He'll never know how close he came to becoming the big brother of three squeaky guinea pigs. #visitcanberra #humanbrochure #igerscanberra

This little lady lost her mother today. Luckily, a responsible motorist brought her in to a local vet, who then called Wildcare. We did this patient transfer today from North Canberra to Captains Flat, and the carers at the other end believe she'll make a full recovery (yay!). Drive safe, and if you hit and injure wildlife, call it in - whether they look likely to live or not, we have an obligation to help where we can, and #Wildcare have officers on hand to euthanise those too injured to survive. #humanbrochure #visitcanberra #igerscanberra #queanbeyan #seeaustralia

I've been grumpy (almost) all day. I just can't stand the cold. When I checked my weather app at 2:22pm, it was showing 2 degrees and foggy. I said on Twitter that there's absolutely nothing or no one that's worth getting out of bed and putting on pants for. It seems mother nature listened to me. 😀😀 The sun came out and gave me a beautiful goodbye, sunset. Good night #CBR. #sunset #visitcanberra #seeaustralia #humanbrochure

My plan was to go out and catch the sunset from the lake or National Arboretum. But... The devil inside of me was screaming to stay at home as it was too cold to do anything outdoors. So... Yep.. I listened to the devil, and watched the sunset from my window. Good night #CBR. #sunset #visitcanberra #seeaustralia #sofranksocial #humanbrochure
