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.



Now I understand why @laurenepbath loves the fog. 😄😄 Dreamy. Good morning #CBR. #sunrise #visitcanberra #seeaustralia #humanbrochure

Walk on by || spring is such a different light from the other seasons. Everything seems brighter and softer, with gentle rays bathing everything in their sight... Just so refreshing... ~ #humanbrochure #lakeburleygriffin #morning

Branching out || when I get a chance, I pop by Lake Burley Griffin before work to get some morning shots. I always aim to post them in the morning, but I get sidetracked and always end up forgetting until the evening. Today is no different... So here is my morning shot to wish you a good evening! ~ #humanbrochure #lakeburleygriffin

Spring in #Canberra can be tricky. You want to wear something in trend but the weather doesn't cooperate sometimes. I really wanted to wear my floral dress when I went to #Floriade on Sunday morning. But it was frosty 2 degrees and I wasn't prepared to suffer for the sake of fashion. Lol. So I picked this top and tuxedo jacket from @danniiminogue for @targetaustralia. For the first time in my life I don't need to alter the sleeves of jacket or blazer. Yay me!! The coloured skinny jeans also from Target (kidswear). Ankle boots from #Midas, and bag still the same #KateSpade. Btw, this is the talking bench. According to @kazuriphotography , if you feel lonely at @floriade_australia , the talking bench will keep you company. 😄😄 #itstarget #danniifortarget #100awesomedays #tastecanberra #seeaustralia #humanbrochure
