I am putting together a website dedicated to what’s great about Canberra. All the great places to visit and things to do that people from out of town don’t know about. I’m just sick of people whinging about how boring and crap and cold Canberra is, but find the real problem is that people don’t share their information. Canberrans generally stick to their own set of friends, so outsiders find it hard to get to know people and the good places to go, so they end up at the War Memorial or Parliament House and then say how boring the place is.
So i need some input. If you have any favourite things to do, places to go to eat or just hang out, your favourite bands to watch or venues to watch them, favourite events, favourite days of the week and what’s on, your favourite places to visit in the Canberra surrounds (like the Beach or Snow being so close). But basically why YOU love Canberra.
This will no means be a 104.7 favourite Hairdresser or Gym type site, just real people with real stories about their real experiences in Canberra.
For example, I love live music. Monday night bootleg sessions down the Phoenix rocks, but interstate people that don’t know about it, would miss it. I want them to know about it, so if they head down for a long weekend and happen to be here on the Monday they NOW have somewhere to go.
If you don’t love Canberra or have nothing positive to say about, please read the next article and move on. I don’t want to hear it, i’ve heard it for 30 years.
Any input would be great. Thank you,
