So as many of you can tell, Mandela effect is a topic I follow closely and have for some time. I didn't notice this one about the capital of Australia until just recently though. And wanted to do a quick test and tally up some votes to see who remembers what.

Who remembers the capital of Australia as

A. Sydney
B. Canberra

or C. Other

I read on Wikipedia just now that apparently Canberra became the capital of Australia in 1938. This is mind boggling for me, because I've always remembered it as Sydney.

Would love to hear your thoughts.

If you asked me, I'd probably say Sydney is the capital, but that's because it's the most popular Australian city that I know of. Interesting!

Didn't know it was Canberra, never heard of it!

Thanks for sharing..

My thoughts are you (like many) thought it was Sydney but are surprised to find it is actually Canberra.
Not Mandela Effect just a misunderstanding of capital cities.

I just responded to you in another thread about this.

I'm with you, I always remembered it as Sydney. My memory isn't faulty but it's also not perfect. Canberra is news to me, this is the first I have heard that this is the capital of Australia.

Interesting thread...

Too many "effects" for me to completely dismiss this theory.

Keeping an open mind is good in my opinion, the world is much stranger than we believe it to be. No one knows for sure what the heck our life is...all we can do is wonder and speculate.

May I ask if you're from the United States? It seems that issues outside the USA don't register on many American's radar.
Canberra has always been the capital of Australia

Seriously? That means you don't get behind the steering wheel of a car or rely on electric power to cool down your fridge?

It was a capital since last time i checked...that was back in 1980 something. I remember then concluding how it's strange that Canberra is the capital...I guess most people think Sidney...because it's the largest city in Australia.

Anyway...0 points for Mandella here...as always.

Size has nothing to do with it.

Is Washington the largest city in The U.S. ?

When I was younger, babies were found under gooseberry bushes.
Nowadays, everything seems to have changed, and babies are produced in other ways.
Must be Mandela effect?

Mandela Effect < not learning capital cities and/or forgetting them.

No, that's still how it works.

actually...in most cases...the largest city usually is the capital. So people might be forgiven for concluding so without checking it.

From Canada. See some people will say Canberra has always been the capital of Australia. But a ton of others will say Sydney. It took me a while to finally realize what Mandela effect is all about.
Technically in our own worlds nobody is right or wrong, because the whole idea about it is that in one timeline/ reality Canberra has always been the capital.

But in the other dimension/reality?? It's always been Sydney. I've leaned towards this being a mass psy op in the past. But when old cd's, bible's, other books ( like Berenstein bears), have their pages literally altered... You know that whatever is happening is next level technology.

Completely in agreement with you on that statement. We live in a very strange world. Keeping an open mind is important without a doubt.

So like, how many Australians used to think Sydney was the capital of their country?

Canberra and Washington (and Brasilia) have one thing in common; they were new cities deliberately created at "neutral" points in a federation, so they would not have grown to large size in a natural way.

riiiight.

And Berenstein bears is the pinnacle of that tech. I guess that one was a dry run...for testing purposes. Or...imagine...altering en entire timeline...just so Darth Vader can say a sentence...in a slightly different manner.

Who pays for that tech...I wanna know.
