Canberra:
Canberra is the National Capital of Australia.  It has a population of
310,000 and is an important base for legume research and education.

Canberra is also a beautiful city.  Its character as a 'city of light and
space'; a contemporary garden-city, makes it a major tourist destination.

Attractions include its scenic landscapes; lakes, parks and hills as well
as its impressive public buildings, such as New Parliament House, the
National Library, the National Gallery , the Australian War Memorial and
the Australian Academy of Science.

Canberra is only a 2-hour drive to either the Snowy Mountains or the NSW
South Coast.

Though cool in July, Canberra's winter days are nearly always crisp and
clear with sunny blue skies.
