Canberra: Spectator Sports
Australia's Bustling Capital
If you're into sport, Canberra is the place for you. As well as being home to many of Australia's sporting heroes and their training ground, the Australian Institute of Sport, Canberra fields top teams in rugby league and rugby union, women's basketball, netball and hockey. They enjoy regular Australian Football League (Aussie rules) matches too.
But it's not just a city for spectator sports. There are ten golf courses and great facilities for other sports, from tennis to cricket, and there are hundreds of junior sporting teams.
