The Australian Capital Territory
The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) is the capital territory of the Commonwealth of Australia and its smallest self-governing internal territory. It is an inland enclave in New South Wales, situated in bushland.
The ACT was conceived during the Federation conventions of the late 19th century as a neutral location for a new national capital. This was because of fierce rivalry between Melbourne and Sydney, each claiming the right to be the national capital. Territory was transferred to the Commonwealth by the state of New South Wales in 1911, and construction of the capital, Canberra, began in 1913.
