CityNews Canberra YouTube festival

Share Canberra's trusted news:

The Hungry Beast’s “Canberra: The Musical”… “if you like space and driving in circles then I’ve got the place for you…” a delightful rolicking foot tapping Broadway style number.

Do you live in Canberra? Do you think you know our nation’s capital? Is your mind a Google map of the streets and parks and houses and public buildings?

What about the unspoken underlying culture of the city? Are we just saturated in bureaucracy, fried in political wonk and served up with a healthy slice of urban planning?

Or is there a little more to this mountain-ringed circle-centric town, known as much for porn and fireworks as suited-up representatives of the land down under?

The CityNews presents the Canberra YouTube Festival, our pick of the finest capital footage on your internets, showing you the truth about our town.

Selling our city:

Weird American travel video… for a lengthly discussion on the stuff we have here and around here:

Live in Canberra’s pixilated corporate sunset where people do sports to awkward synthetic dance music:

I have no idea who this Bruce character is, but his photo montage and warbling out of tune ode to Canberra, “a great place to live” “a place with jobs for all” is quite frankly comic genius.

3rd Nerd’s Canberra Raiders song “the green machine doesn’t look so mean”.

Mark Webber (actually from Queanbeyan) the “Canberra Milk Kid” painful television advertisement:

Natural disasters:

A RiotACT production featuring a thunderstorm slide-show and Canberra’s second best looking rock band The Lavans:

Bushfire p0rn: a selection of raw footage showing the suburbs alight.

Random capital digital love.

Did you know Canberra has an occult history? Conspiracy theory, dramatic soundtrack and lightning bolts. What more do you need to know?

Questacon and dance music. What a mix.

Kids with scooters doing their thing around Canberra. They have a cool soundtrack.
