Before we moved here we were told that “Canberra is a funny place, no one is friendly there” by quite a few people.
I wonder why there is that perception in the rest of Australia.
We got these responses from a varying group of people, some that had lived here, some that had only visited, people that had held positions at the highest points in Federal Government etc.
I was also told that “Canberrans are weird” and when asked in what way they couldn’t elaborate they just said “it was just a feeling”!
I can understand that people have a problem with government and yeah Canberra gets bagged for that but the people?
