Tourism in ACT seems to be back on track as Canberrans attended the Summernats Festival last weekend. Spectators flocked to the capital state to see the annual specialist car enthusiast festival.

Many car enthusiasts, some even travelled from New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, to attend the event which has been running for the past 35 years. The car roadshow this year was held in Braddon where cars participated in the parade.

In other news, ACT Health is in full swing in conducting COVID-19 testing and pushing for more Canberrans to get their booster shots.
