With all the headlines of doom and gloom, you could be forgiven for thinking that…
The shimmer of Lake Burley Griffin on a hot afternoon, the gloss of a fresh scoop of ice cream, the glint of tinsel…summer in Canberra shines like nothing else.
So when we set out to create a bumper edition for our summer print Magazine, that was the theme we went with—Shine.
The 18th edition of HerCanberra’s print Magazine: Shine—is packed with interviews, fashion, recipes, things to do around Canberra and beautiful photography, and is available in stockists now (for free!) across Canberra. Click here to find your closest one!
