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.



Sundown || sunsets in Canberra can be spectacular... In fact, in my opinion everything about Canberra is quite spectacular. This weekend I have the honor of showing off this city to some interstates guests and a local friend as part of the #humanbrochure. Check out the link in my bio (or the tag) for my and 100 other locals' perspective on Canberra ~ #sunset #canberra #lakeburleygriffin

Whenever we travel we like to buy the kids a picture book about the places we visit, as a memento. So I gave my nieces and nephew a copy of Riley and the Jumpy Kangaroo by local Canberra author @taniamccartney for their holiday here in the nation's capital. We will be visiting many of the #canberra landmarks included in the story, just like Riley! #humanbrochure #visitcanberra #canberrafamilyfun

The weekend of showing off Canberra has finally arrived! It's been a great few months being a 101 Local Human, getting free access to all of Canberra's tourist attractions, but the best part is upon us: a full weekend of outdoor adventures in the ACT with some visiting Taswegians! #humanbrochure

Freakin love these guys... Working at the Pressie has been a wondrous whirlwind adventure for my tastebuds. Squeals of delight can be heard throughout the Club when food lands in front of me, not to mention the fist bumps, happy dancing and tummy rubbing as I devour each bite. If you could hang out with a team of chefs for a day, what recipe would you ask them to teach you? #chefsrule #humanbrochure
