In April 1911 the Australian Government held an international competition to produce a design for Canberra, its new capital city. Griffin produced a design with impressive renderings of the plan produced by his wife. They first heard about the competition in July, while on honeymoon, and worked feverishly to prepare the plans. On May 23, 1912, Griffin's design was selected as the winner from among 137 entries. This created significant press coverage at the time and brought him professional and public recognition. Of his plan, he famously remarked: "I have planned a city that is not like any other in the world. I have planned it not in a way that I expected any government authorities in the world would accept. I have planned an ideal city – a city that meets my ideal of the city of the future."
At the time Parliament House was designed, Burley Griffin was associating with people in the theosophical movement, an occult society started in the 19th century that sought divine wisdom through contact with God and other spiritual beings.

They built Parliament House underground so all of the Political bunnies would be happy.
It has two aspects. The newest and most obvious is the space needle. Telecom tower is a major structure that literally hums with power. A power that seems to attract interstellar intelligence. The Mount Stromlo observatory complex also contains interstellar intelligence but it is intellectually stimulating. Interstellar activity on Black Mountain operates more at the emotional and will levels of our human consciousness. The second aspect is old. Black Mountain has entry and exit portals to the underworld to an area occupied by beings that can be called trolls if you wish to give them human characteristics. They are dark and feed off our human need and desire to control situations. This implies that they respect money, and they do. The radiations from Telecom Tower enlivens them, making them jumpy and overactive. Troll portals are all around Black Mountain, on Action and Black Mountain peninsular, in the city centre, in the Botanical Gardens. The Portals open and close, why I am not sure, perhaps this relates to times of the day, the weather or astrological circumstances. They also seem to be strengthened and weakened by Feng Sui considerations and human activities. Electricity has made trolls overactive and in combination with radio waves has given them the opportunity to live above ground. Electro Magnetic Radiation is a force in which they live and so as we increasingly become exposed to EMR our bodies increasingly become possessed by Trolls. Cancer is one of their effects. The popularity of the Goth movement is an indication of how far trolls have penetrated into our social life. All this is happening now as human, troll, deva and other beings are finding new balances in our electronic age. But enough digression. Black Mountain protects but at a price. It robs Canberra of some of its humanity but is jealous and protective of its sphere of influence. This gives stability of place. Black Mountain has strong links to the surrounding hills.
28 MAR 2015—20 SEP 2015 X-rated: the sex industry in the ACT Pollies, porn and pyrotechnics. The sex capital of Australia. Pornberra. Since the 1980s Canberra has been synonymous with sex in the minds of many Australians. Twenty years have passed since it became legal to sell X-rated videos in the Australian Capital Territory and the adult industry has gone through periods of growth, boom and, many would argue, bust. This exhibition explores the evolution of Canberra’s sex industry over the past 50 years.
ASK most Australians about Canberra and you’ll get little more than a yawn, with the capital known mainly for politics, peace and quiet. Yet there’s another side to the city, one filled with strange stories of underground bunkers, secret listening towers, a disappearing lake, ghosts, UFOs and a hairy beast. Mysterious tales first told by early Aboriginal Australians have re-emerged time and again, from 18th century European settlers all the way to present-day witnesses. Perhaps there are natural, or man-made, explanations for the eerie episodes right at the seat of government, but whatever the truth behind the myriad conspiracy theories, one thing is for sure: something weird is going on in Canberra.
