Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, is the capital of Australia and a great place for dumpster diving. There is a relatively small community of freegans who utilise the wasted food from supermarkets and produce shops around the various community centres throught the captial. Probably the best bet are the big supermarkets such as Woolworths and Coles, both of which waste a huge amount of good produce each day. The dumpsters are generally conveniently located in accesible spots near the loading docks at the rear of the stores. Particularly good are the supermarkets around the Canberra Centre in Civic and the Woolworths in Dickson, the later of which is quite a popular spot for dumpster diving amongst locals.
