Canberra = Canberry
Our name comes from the history of this area. Some say it came from the Ngunnawal word Kambera or Canberry, which is claimed to mean ‘meeting place’. Others say it came from the Australian Canberry, that grew abundantly here, when it was known locally as the Canberry Plains found in maps drawn in 1837.
