Taking internet polls too seriously is one of the more foolish things one can do.
That hasn’t stopped Joy Burch from announcing the top ten and top 100 entries from the “Like Canberra” voting process.
People nominated almost 14,000 reasons why they like living in the ACT. These ‘likes’ were sorted into a number of categories, and earlier this year the community was asked to vote on their most special things about Canberra.
“After two months of polling, where almost 135,000 votes were received, we have finally arrived at our ‘Top100’. The list includes an amazing variety of people’s favourite places, activities and experiences – a real indication that there is so much to do and see in our city.”
Canberra’s ‘Top Ten’ favourite things, in order from 1 to ten are:
1. Floriade/Night Fest
2. Fantastic views of the mountains
3. Scotty and Nige from 104.7
6. Australian War Memorial
8. National Zoo and Aquarium
9. Old Bus Depot Markets
