Now that you’ve heard a little about Nifty, let’s look into Australia’s Capital Territory. A brief history followed with the best things to see and do if you’re a traveller or a local looking to explore your backyard!
In the times before 1911, the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) did not exist. Instead, the land it now covers remained under the state of New South Wales. Before this time, Australia also lacked an administrative centre, the capital city where the federal government would be established. Originally, it was decided that Sydney would become the capital due to its large population and economy. Though this was challenged when Melbourne began to grow rapidly, in some part due to the Australian gold rush.
So as to settle the matter, the establishment of a new “neutral ground” was proposed. After further debate, the state of New South Wales agreed to provide the land for the creation of the Federal Capital Territory, as the ACT was then known. By 1910, the legal framework for the creation of the new territory was introduced and on the date of the 1st of January 1911, control of the Territory was officially assumed by the Commonwealth.
Within this brief history, it is also important to mention the city of Canberra, as it now stands as the capital city of Australia. Within the early development of the ACT, it was decided that a new city should be established within the capital territory. A competition for the design of the city was opened. Participants from all over the world submitted their plans for what would become an Australian icon.
The winner of this competition, Chicago architect Walter Burley Griffin, proposed a design that had an abundance of geometric patterns, incorporated concentric hexagonal and octagonal streets emanating from several centres. It had, as its centrepiece, an elaborate lake composed of smaller bodies of water, with extensive natural vegetation around it. The lakes and geometry were deliberately designed so that their orientation was related to various natural topographical landmarks. It was further intended that buildings of national significance and natural landmarks would align with these geometric axes.
Construction would commence on this project in 1913 and would continue over the next 70-years; slowly but surely, though, Canberra began to take shape. With the completion of New Parliament House in 1988, it could be said that Walter’s plan had finally come to life. Though, being a City, it will never stop growing.
