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.

Had a lovely evening listening to the talented Brendan Gallagher at Smith's . Brendan is known for his work with Karma County, and possesses the sort of mad skills only earned in a long and tenacious career, we were a lucky crowd of 10 stretched out luxuriously in the often packed Bookstore. Guitar, piano, harmonica and his one back up member- Kenny Rogers guesting on the iDrum for a song. As with many of my favourite singer/songwriter gigs, we were treated with anecdotes, thought bubbles on song writing and a music quiz with encores as the prizes #humanbrochure

Huge thank you to Ranger Kate at Mulligans Flat. Saw some beautiful wild life on our twilight tour. Even after living in #Canberra for 2 years I didn't know this nature reserve existed #humanbrochure #visitcanberra #localscan

So interesting to enjoy a night tour of Cockington Green Gardens as part of the #Humanbrochure weekend. It was lovely to chat to Mark Sarah, General manager and son of the original founders and listen to some of his stories. Here's a picture of the street where the Tango was invented in Buenos Aires recreated in miniature, complete with mini dancers!

For those who are curious, these are lamb ribs - and they were so deliciously moist and succulant that the meat fell of the bones - and for tose with a big appetitie, they are the perfect accompanyment to a couple of Belgian Ales. #humanbrochure
