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.



This time tomorrow we will have nearly 60 new models on the Canberra scene. Will you be one? #model #fashion #cbr #humanbrochure

"The only way to see the sunset is to ride into it" Well, if you ride along lake burley griffin, you are not only seeing the #sunset, you are also seeing me with my phone and selfie stick, and we can take selfie together. Lol. Good night #CBR. #visitcanberra #seeaustralia #humanbrochure

Visited my favourite Thai restaurant in Canberra tonight for a quick, tasty, cheap meal. Pictured are fresh prawn rolls ($6.80). We also had pad thai and red duck curry #nomz #humanbrochure

Some days just don't have enough hours. From quick brekkie date pre work to a blitz of a coffee walk with @justagirlfrommumbai (super awesome to meet you btw) to kicking back with lemon mint chillers with bestie. Absolute madness but so so much fun and worth every minute! Oh and I factored a whole day of work in there somewhere too :p @tales_of_a_confectionist now I know how you feel when you're all foodied out!! #foodphotography #humanbrochure #tastecanberra #tasteaustralia #localscan #cbrfoodie #tweetcanberra #cbrfoodie #igersfood #friends #foodielife #foodsnob #coffeedate #coffeesnob #mylife #mycity #itsallhappening #foodlove

I just found my next car @floriade_australia I am not sure how it runs but it smells amazing and I love the colours. I have been to the @floriade_australia spring festival every day this week and I discover something new each day.

I received a reminder last night that I haven't posted any pictures of @floriade_australia . Oopsie..... 🙈 Don't worry, I'll post hundred pictures of Floriade starting from tomorrow. And expect another hundred pictures on Saturday morning as I'll be there early with my fellow human brochures. This is just a little sneak peak of #floriade through my lens. 😊 #visitcanberra #seeaustralia #humanbrochure

Canberra’s nouveau-cool status seems to have partly bloomed from a cross-pollination between local artists and new cafes and eateries. But it’s making more than just chatter among locals...it's creating its own street art scene, which is as beautiful as it is diverse... #cbr #humanbrochure

Just a tree || I always struggle to fit this particular tree into a frame. It always just too big. For some reason today, I managed to fit most of it in; showcasing its impressive branches soon to be filled with foliage providing shade and cover for the little inhabitants of the park ~ #humanbrochure #lakeburleygriffin
