Australian Capital Territory

The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) is a federal territory of Australia located in the southeastern part of the country. It is the smallest of Australia's eight states and territories, with an area of just over 2,400 square miles. The ACT is home to the national capital of Australia, Canberra, which is also the seat of the federal government. The territory was created in 1911 as a compromise between the larger states of New South Wales and Victoria, who had been vying for the right to host the national capital. The ACT is known for its natural beauty, with many parks, reserves, and nature reserves within its borders. The territory is also home to many important cultural institutions, including the National Gallery of Australia, the National Library of Australia, and the Australian War Memorial.
