In response to the rivalry between Melbourne and Sydney as Australia's capital city, Canberra was pre-planned and built in the 20th century. It was built inland unlike all other main Australian cities which are located on the coast. A new territory named Australian Capital Territory (abreviated as ACT) was created which includes Canberra, farmland, and a number of national parks. The territory is enclaved within New South Wales.
