Show us you’re from Canberra without saying you’re from Canberra

Posted in Community, Our people, Uncategorised March 15th 2022

As we begin settling into autumn, many team members reflected on our summer travels and the iconic landmarks and moments we saw, which sparked a thought. What beautiful scenes are iconic in representing Canberra? Keen CBR local and Portfolio Manager Annette Clarke felt it’s Canberra’s markets—Haig Park and Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets. But, for Sales Agent Marty Faux, it’s all about the Capital’s beautiful and scenic roads—especially Uriarra Road in Stromlo. 

There were so many amazing contenders when we thought about the things, places, people, culture, and language, but here’s a little clip showing Canberra’s best bits.

Take a look, and see what we mean when we say we’re from Canberra.
