About In The Taratory

Welcome to In The Taratory!  I’m T1*, a mid-20s Queenslander who moved to Canberra for work just over five years ago (am almost a local!).

Auto Italia is held in early April each year at the gardens in front of Old Parliament House

I know there can be a bit of bad press both outside this fair capital and within (Canberrans are often their own worst enemy!) about lack of things to do, and am passionate about proving this wrong. I’m regularly getting out there finding and experiencing all the things to do in Canberra and surrounds, and am willing to give most anything a go.

The Enlighten Festival is held in the Parliamentary Triangle in early March and is simply spectacular. This photo is of the National Library all lit up.

I hope that this is not just an enjoyable blog to write, but an enjoyable blog to read. Most of all, I hope to give you some ideas about the variety of things to do in Canberra! If there’s anything you reckon I should be reviewing, please feel free to leave a comment or e-mail inthetaratory@gmail.com.

  2. Hey T1 and T2

    Always a pleasure to find other bloggers in the territory!
    Fantastic concept, we really need to get our beautiful city on the map :)

  3. Hi! Just found you, and like the blog.

    I’ll be sure to mention the Taratory in a future post…

  4. Great work T’s!
    Have you ever tried Pod Food in Pialligo?

    Also, autumn is coming, and that is possibly Canberra’s best season, I look forward to your reviews during that season.

    • I tried Pod Food back when it was owned by the now owners of 3 seeds (does that make sense?) – good reminder to head out there again. Autumn is also when our Centenary is – should be plenty of things to review and celebrate!

  5. Hey Ts

  6. Nice blog! Hope to see more posts from you. Canberra has its charms…but sometimes we forget that…

  7. Hi, I’ve just moved to Canberra amongst much of the ‘bad press’ you mentioned – my friends were a little horrified, and there were many jokes about me hanging out with the roos… This blog has made my day! Have you reviewed the Murrumbateman Movable Feast? We were thinking of going this weekend; just wondering if it’s any good. Thanks for the post on the nail places! Jodie.

    • So pleased to hear that! Canberra is all about scratching the surface – once you do the amount of stuff to do that’s revealed is almost overwhelming. A friend did a guest post of the moving feast a few years ago – you might be able to find it using the search function. I haven’t been before but hoping to get along this weekend. There are plenty of winery posts on the blog to give you an idea of what to expect at the different wineries :) Thanks again!

  8. Love this blog. Keep up the great work Tara! :-)

  10. Hi Tara
    I have enjoyed reading your sight. I am taking some of my Year 5/6/7 students from Esk SS to Canberra in June this year. Is there anything you would recommend we do?
