Welcome to spring
Sring has sprung! It's clich d, I know, but I can already smell the
owers, feel the sun on my back and hear the sweet sounds of birds
chirping as winter coats are being shoved to the back of wardrobes
across the capital.
is See Canberra is like that cool local friend who's gonna show you
the best the city has to o er, with all the boring bits cut out.
is rollercoaster tour of the territory starts with food -- as our
stunning cover shot demonstrates, Canberra in spring is a foodies'
paradise if you know where to go. Our dining pages let you know the
best burgers in the capital, as well as the nightlife hotspots.
e foodie theme continues in our cover story, the Alternative
Canberra photoessay that required photographer Daniel to embrace
his inner hipster and capture the best restaurants, cafes, bars, stores, art
installations and public spaces that are helping Canberra to cast o its
stu y old reputation of years past.
But don't worry, we're still bringing loyal readers all the information
they need on the classic spring events that make Canberra, well,
Canberra. Floriade is synonymous with spring in the capital, so we sat
down with the organisers of Australia's biggest oral festival to get the
lowdown on what there is to see and do at this year's event.
We also took a look at the Australian National Botanic Gardens, one
of the most beautiful spring destinations in the capital, and at Parliament
House, which is hosting an open day, a new display of Prime Ministerial
portraits and a series of garden tours that will appeal to locals, tourists
and politics geeks alike.
Whatever you decide to try, I can guarantee that with a copy of
See Canberra as your guide you certainly won't be bored in the capital
