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.

Portrait of Andrew Barr, an old friend now the Chief Minister of the Australian Capital Territory, who is truly making Canberra one very hip city and connecting it to the world. It was great seeing him last night at the #enlightencanberra #enlightenmeet hosted by @instagram. Very Proud! #humanbrochoure #visitcanberra #seeaustralia

Today is Holi, the festival of colors in my mother country India, and I cannot be there to celebrate it with my family and loved one. However this is a token of color from Enlighten Canberra! Wishing my friends and loved ones a very happy and colorful Holi. :-) #enlightencanberra #holi #humanbrochoure #enlightenmeet

A shot I've been working on for almost nine months. I finally got it tonight. Full moon Telstra Tower style. I would have liked to join @igerscanberra for the @enlighten_canberra Instameet, instead I went and got my legs badly scratched walking through thick scrub chasing this shot. #Canberra #CBR #visitcanberra #humanbrochure #igerscanberra #australia #seeaustralia
