Our Bush Capital
This book has brought families together during a year that truly has left us searching for new adjectives.
Our Bush Capital is not only a celebration of the nation's capital, its seasons, festivals and cultural institutions, but the wonder of a childhood spent finding new adventures within the city's unique landscape.
Our Bush Capital was a crowdfunded publication,that exceeded all expectations. Not only did the city of Canberra get behind this celebration of the nation's capital, but two tourism organisations sponsored the book, to ensure that it was published, and that one copy of the book was given to every federal MP and senator. It was read out in ACT Parliament by the Early Childhood and Education Minister and celebrated in parliament by other members.
