Long before Canberra, there was Canberry. After Federation, Canberry, which had been renamed Acton by an absentee English landlord, became the base from which the national capital was built. Canberry Tales explores, through the stories of its occupants down the centuries, the history of this remarkable microcosm, and tells how its Aboriginal name survived to grace a city for all Australians, black and white.
