Embassies

All the embassies and high commissions are located closely to one another and mostly in Yarralumla. Interestingly, almost all embassies show off their unique culture and architectural styles so it is said that the embassies in Canberra are perhaps the only ones in the world that could pass off as tourist attractions!
