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.



Floriade Head Gardener, Andrew took us on a wonderful behind the scenes tour of #floriade this morning. So interesting to hear about all the planning and hard work that goes into this amazing event. Thank you. #visitcanberra #humanbrochure @floriade_australia

I actually braved my fear of heights and went on the ferros wheel at #floriade today. Lovely views of the flowers but I didn't take any photos while I was up there except for a very dodgy selfie to prove to my husband that I did it! #humanbrochure #visitcanberra #Canberra

Amalgamation || I remember being a kid and playing with paints... Mixing colours so much that they always turned brown. It wasn't that I didn't like colour, but rather that I was excited about the infinite number of combinations that mixing colours can provide, and how too much always turned brown. As an adult, I get that same excitement when I see the colours that Mother Nature throws at us... In particular during dusk when everything seems so much more intense... It's the weekend! So have some fun! ~ #humanbrochure #YarralumlaBay #TelstraTower #sunset
